Condition Book Special Looms in Belmont Feature


Today's Belmont Park feature is a preliminary allowances for 3s and older sprinting 6 furlongs and it's those conditions that seem to point squarely at Duval.

Not only is this late developing 3YO improving for Steve Asmussen at the right time but his recent blowout win at Parx does count in today's conditions that makes an exception for state-bred winners.

He had little problem defeating Pa.-breds last out, his figures are ascending, the spacing is perfect and an inside slip and Castellano should get this guy on his way immediately.

We'll take Duval to win with no price restrictions, and key-box exactas with lightly raced and promising Mott trainee, Round, and David Jacobson's equally well spotted Dyker Beach.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1631

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 494-317-251

Nature and Nurture the Key to Victory at Keeneland


Back to Keeneland for a similar featured event today, a one mile allowances for 3 & ups only this one if for the fillies.

While not usually our tack, we're taking a first time turf runner against proven grass fillies, but there's no question that Spelling Again rates to appreciate the surface switch.

Not only is she bred for turf, she's bred for distance on both sides of her pedigree. and she has nurture going for her as well.

Graham Motion has been very live at this meet and here is asking a late developing 3YO, one that has improved since adding blinkers two starts back, to try turf in her second start following a layoff. Both scenarios are profitable for this barn. Coming out of sprints and positioned in the middle of the field, she should be nicely placed when Robby Albarado asks her for run.

Taking Spelling Again to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing her with late running Seanchai and another late developing sophomore, High Wire Kitten.

Bim Bam Thank You Sir


Today's Keeneland feature is a highly competitive turf mile for older allowance types.

Free World (5-2) is clearly the in-form distance specialist with a 3-for-4 slate at the trip and fast figures for the Moss-Amoss team, a worthy favorite.

But then so is Bim Bam (10-1) highly effective at this distance at 4-for-12, is coming off a streak of his own, seeking a fourth straight score while reuniting with winning rider Ricardo Santana albeit making his first start since August. But he has shown some affinity for Keeneland turf and the dynamic suits his late kick.

Taking Bim Bam to win at 6-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the favorite and multiple winner Edge of Reality (5-1) from the live Motion shedrow.
