Stop Him? You Can Only Hope to Contain Him
Today's feature race at Belmont, the overnight Imperial Gesture Stakes, poses but one question: Can Chad Brown win a dirt race?
We're being facetious, of course, but given the edge that Book Review enjoys on the Equiform scale, I dare say I could tighten the girth and send this 3-year-old filly out there for a score. Book Review has been beyond 7 furlongs only once and finished second, to a filly named Questing. There are some nice, promising fillies in here but none are of her class right now.
Taking Book Review to win, no price restrictions on what promises to be the prohibitive choice, and will try to get some money out of the race by getting Final Escrow to finish second.
