Rebounds R Us


Today's G2 Sands Point at Belmont Park for 3YO turf fillies has drawn a field of nine; a triad trained by Chad Brown. We're going to attempt to climb that mountain.

When last seen in Saratoga, La Coronel (4-1), making her first start since an unsuccessful foray into Ascot, she had virtually no chance, losing ground throughout while on the chase over a course that played heavily to inside speed during that duration. Further, she appeared a tad short of condition.

Given her tremendous turn of foot, and a sharp recent breeze indicating improvement, we're looking for a rebound performance.

Taking La Coronel to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta key-box with sharp Brown trainee Inflexibility (6-1) and first-Lasix invader Vue Fantastique (7-2).

Put the Blame on Me


Today's Belmont feature, an NX@ Optional, features two favorites that are trying to recapture past promise. Of those, we choose You're to Blame (8-5).

Virtually eliminated by his wide draw and trip over an inside biased track in Saratoga's Curlin Stakes, he returned immediately to Long Island where his works picked up noticeably, showing his affinity for this surface where he's compiled a (2) 1-1-0 slate.

Taking You're to Blame to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Doyouknowsomethng (5-1), making a quick turnaround after a pressed-all inside trip here going longer with better last week.

This Kitten Will Roar in KD Closing-Day Feature


Today's closing day feature at Kentucky Downs has extra meaning for the Ramseys. Therefore, Kitten's Roar (2-1), the mare that has been very competitive at the G1 and G2 levels, takes a meaningful drop for a lion's share of the $350,000 purse.

Working sharply at her CDT base, she will prove too much for the group to handle.

Taking Kitten's Roar to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with price play Paige (10-1).
