The Belmont Park summer gate-away stakes is the Evan Shipman for state-breds 3 & up at a mile an a sixteenth. Can Market Psychology (5-2) go the distance? If he can, he’s long gone early and holding them safe late. Everyone knows he’s very fast. And he won at 7 and 7-½ furlongs, so another furlong should be do-able. Eibar Coa and an outside post. Coa needs to ride conservatively aggressive.

Sorry, lately I’ve been watching too many political talk shows.

Stud Muffin (3-1) is top-py, but he’s a new horse at four and he’s had sufficient rest. He will get a fast pace, but maybe too fast. He could get bottomed out. I should await Saratoga before backing Naughty New Yorker (2-1) again, but he’s proven classy at this level and runs good performance figures consistently. And it’s Pat Kelly’s time of year.

Taking Market Psychology at early line odds or better, keying in exactas and trifectas first and second with the other two.

In case you haven’t noticed, we've had two server episodes in the last month. Our apologies for the inconvenience. We bravely predicted that Music Note would win the CCAO, but obviously can’t pad our win percentage. The way we’ve been going, any win would have been welcome. So the running totals don’t reflect Saturday play.
