Will History Repeat?
Today's feature at Belmont Park is the Grade 1 Lonesome Glory Hurdle Stakes over National Steeplechase fences at 2-1/2 miles, and while it appears Demonstrative (5-2) has earned his highweight assignment by winning both Spa stakes starts, including the G1 New York Turf Writers Cup Handicap, it is History Boy (3-1) who's been carefully pointed to this by Jonathan Sheppard that rates the call.
Dropping 11 pounds form his restructed stakes score in the Mickey Walsh at Saratoga, he's also getting 12 from the early line favorite that's paying the price here for his Spa Grade 1.
Taking History Boy to win at 2-1 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with Demonstrative.
