I Be Eating Chalk


Today's feature is the John Morrissey for state-bred sprinters which looms a two horse affair between the faster Be Bullish (8-5), claimed by the hot George Weaver for Mike Repole vs. the Anstu Stable runner Ibboyee (7-5), trained by... wait for it... Todd Pletcher. No guesswork here. Prefer class figure over speed figure, and a preference for the Spa surface over a distance specialist.

Taking Ibboyee to win, no price restrictions, and a cold exacta over Be Bullish.

Arch Traveler Should Love This Setup


The Amsterdam Stakes is a highly competitive 6-1/2 furlongs with no shortage of high class gas. The horse with the tactical speed, inside position, a sharp recent work and one who fits the race shape is Arch Traveler (4-1). Given that the Grade 2 marks the return of To Honor And Serve, it would seem that a playable price is assured.

Taking Arch Traveler to win at 7-2 or greater and key boxing him in the exacta with Justin Philip (3-1) and Caleb's Posse (12-1).

Dyna Zaps’em


Today’s Grade 1 Ruffian Handicap features what is, in our view, a highly vulnerable favorite in Payton D’Oro who, while she finished well in her most recent start at Belmont, she had no excuses vs. weaker in prior two-turner.

Super Espresso should improve stretching to the two-turn configuation but it’s Dynazapper (6-1) that’s the most interesting. Her most recent at Belmont was impressive from a visual and figure perspective and her pedigree figures to love this added ground.

Taking Dynazaper to win at 9-2 or greater and keying her first and second in multiples with her rivals here.
