Apologies for delay and truncated analysis; away from home for holiday but did to the work. So, two selections today, in the newly created Belmont Oaks and Derby.

In the Oaks, taking classy Xcelence (5-2) to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Dermot (Belmont Stakes) Weld's Flying Jib.

In the Derby, taking win machine Gailo Chop (5-1) to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with the accomplished Toast of New York (3-1).

We'll catch up with the stats Sunday morning. Continued Happy Stars and Stripes Weekend to all!
