Shug Holds the Key to John’s Call


Today's feature named for the venerable John's Call naturally is a turf marathon going 13 furlongs which means the trip with be everything. While the favorite Winning Cause (2-1) is getting huge class release dropping from five consecutive graded stakes, it's Tricky Hat (5-1) that peaks our interest.

Getting a couple pounds at this distance is not insignificant, neither is the ground saving pole, switch back to regular rider Rosie, an adaptable style, excellent late energy, 1-for-1 on Spa turf and exits a super-key race that produced four next-out winners, the early line value is too tempting to ignore.

Taking Tricky Hat to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding veteran Spa Lover Grand Rapport (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Mark My Words, Take the Hot Hand


Today's featured edition of the NY Stallion Series looks like a two-horse race on paper: the top two choices.

Now while Free Mugatu (3-1) is the better price and impressed with game wide trip-placing in the 7F edition downstate, he did have a run subsequently.

But after Mark My Way (8-5), who won that event, improving his turf record to (4) 2-0-2, including a win at the trip, he was briefly freshened by white hot Linda Rice barn, providing excellent spacing here.

Taking Mark My Way to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with free Mugatu.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1579

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 481-306-242

Amount Wagered: $3,160 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,250.70

Circle Marks the Spot in the Waya


Remember when we talked about how difficult the Diana, for fillies and mares on turf, was? Well, today's Waya at 1-1/2 miles is a killer of a puzzle.

We're going to settle on Inimitable Romanee (9-2) from the white hot Graham Motion shed. State-bred filly is getting some class relief dropping out of a Grade 2, stretches to her best distance, the spacing is good and she's never been off the board in four Spa starts. Her figures are consistently competitive, too.

Taking Inimitable Romanee to win at 4-1 or greater and an exacta box with the very sharp English Class (6-1).
