Favorite Sets the Tone in the Suburban

Tried as I might, I can't get away from Tonalist (3-5) in today's 10-furlong Suburban. Coming off top efforts in first two starts at 4, he finished with a vengeance last time to secure the place behind Honor Code, whose turn of foot in the Met Mile was nothing short of devastating.

Today's added distance, the removal of blinkers, and an outside position should make him a single in whatever sequence you're into on Belmont Park's holiday program extravaganza.

Taking Tonalist to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with the Todd-improved Mylute.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1770

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 533-336

Amount Wagered: $3,540 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,651.60

Profit to Date: $111.60

Turf Connections Find Another Gem

Does today's feature race at Belmont Park showcase a potential Breeders' Cup Turf winner? While that might be a big reach at this point but not entirely out of the question. Not if the ability and promise displayed by Daring Kathy (3-1) as a 3-year-old comes to fruition in her first start at 4. Remember Dayatthespa?

Well, those same owners and trainer are at it again with their private purchase of this former SoFla-based filly. She has speed, can kick, and given added maturity she will be more than fast enough. Nicely drawn inside, Javier will pull the trigger when ready.

Taking Daring Kathy to win at early line odds or greater and key-boxing exactas with both members of the uncoupled Clement entry; super-sharp Zindaya (5-1) and troubled-in-last Marbre Rose (7-2).

Number of Selections since 2007: 1769

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 532-336

Amount Wagered: $3,538 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,638.00

Profit to Date: $100.00

…A Time for Every Purpose Unto Heaven

To the HRI Faithful:

My family has suffered a personal loss as my sister-in-law, Cathie Klitin, passed suddenly on Friday morning, June 26, in Saratoga Springs.

Toni and I will be leaving for New York Saturday afternoon and my participation at HRI will be spotty in the near, foreseeable future.

Tom Jicha will be overseeing things on the editorial side during my absence.

While it may be inconvenient, please check back daily as I will effort to meet my professional responsibilities. Given the circumstances, however, I can make no promises.

We were looking forward to getting back to Saratoga in August. Sadly our return will come a bit sooner.

I can't thank our loyal readers enough!

Yours in racing,

John Pricci
