No Beating Undrafted Today

Today's Belmont turf sprint feature is a NW3 optional and when I saw Undrafted--a horse I usually try to beat and often do--was the 8-5 favorite, I couldn't wait to look at the form.

Then I did, and I decided today I can't beat the Wesley Ward trained choice for various reasons.

The class relief from a Grade 3 was obvious but it was a terrific effort at Kentucky Downs, a demanding surface that should provide all the conditioning this veteran needs. Throw in the fact he won here, is 2-for-5 at this grassy trip and the switch to Rosario should get today's job done with a successful last run.

Taking Undrafted to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with sharp turn-back, Blind Ambition (3-1).
