Risking Litigation Today

Today’s Pot O Luck Stakes is trappy and a lot depe3nds on how you view favored Rail Trip. We thought he had a chance to upset the G1 Whitney, but he never picked up his feet at any time. However, he’s 5-for-5 in exactas at this trip (3 wins), likes Belmont, and retains Ramon.

However, we’ll opt for Litigation Risk, coming off a New Pace Top pattern from a barn that’s 22% profitable second off the layoff. As the speed of the speed, he has a legitimate chance to upset this group.

Taking Litigation Risk to win at 5-1 or better and an exacta box with the favorite.

Fresh filly Looks Jazzy

In today’s listed Jazzy Stakes for females on the grass sprinting six furlongs, we think second choice Quebrada Shiner, (7-2) might have been entered back too quickly off a sharp win on this course two starts back.

Now she returns from Saratoga having had there for the season, not with a reason, except for a freshening. She returns here with nearly seven weeks rest, retains Ramon, and has the kind of speed and kick to suit the race shape from her outside draw.

Taking Quebrada Shiner to win at 5-2 or greater, boxing her in the exacta with Legally Blanca from the ever dangerous Tony Dutrow shedrow.

All In Once Again

Today’s Ashley. Cole Stakes for older New York bred is a pretty evenly matched bunch. It seems that some of the better horses in the field have form that’s questionable.

For those that are sharp right now, it’s a question of whether or not they can get all of the nine furlongs. See early favorite Compliance Officer (5-2) here.

And, finally, the best horses in here are set or press the pace types. I might get pretty crowded on the front end of this. That’s why we’ll try Pocket Cowboys (4-1) one more time.

We liked him to win the West Point but he never had a chance, racing very wide every step of the way, chasing a soft pace. Today, however, he figures to get a better setup on the front end, and the switch to Johnny V. should be the right tonic.

Taking Pocket Cowboys to win at 3-1 or better, key-boxing him in exactas with the favorite and the speedy Straight Story (3-1). If the front bandages come off today; feel free to upgrade his chances dramatically.
