A Cure for the Summertime Blues

Today's BHelmont Park feature, the Jazzy Stakes, the Summng for three-yerar-old turf runners going a mile on the Widener Course to us is all about the distance, freshness, and who has the look of being pointed specifically to this spot. If that runner isn't Adirondack Summer, I don't know who else it might be.

Freshened during the Spa meet, trainer Christophe Clement has put this guy on the fence in the mornings and he looks ready to roll in this short field. Nicely drawn outside with a history of racing well fresh, his best figure came at today's trip, so why not again here?

Taking Adirondack Summer to win, no price restrictions, and boxing hm in exactas with Top Surprise, going first out for Naipaul Chatterpaul, who reaches out for Castellano in this spot.

Risking Litigation Today

Today’s Pot O Luck Stakes is trappy and a lot depe3nds on how you view favored Rail Trip. We thought he had a chance to upset the G1 Whitney, but he never picked up his feet at any time. However, he’s 5-for-5 in exactas at this trip (3 wins), likes Belmont, and retains Ramon.

However, we’ll opt for Litigation Risk, coming off a New Pace Top pattern from a barn that’s 22% profitable second off the layoff. As the speed of the speed, he has a legitimate chance to upset this group.

Taking Litigation Risk to win at 5-1 or better and an exacta box with the favorite.

Fresh filly Looks Jazzy

In today’s listed Jazzy Stakes for females on the grass sprinting six furlongs, we think second choice Quebrada Shiner, (7-2) might have been entered back too quickly off a sharp win on this course two starts back.

Now she returns from Saratoga having had there for the season, not with a reason, except for a freshening. She returns here with nearly seven weeks rest, retains Ramon, and has the kind of speed and kick to suit the race shape from her outside draw.

Taking Quebrada Shiner to win at 5-2 or greater, boxing her in the exacta with Legally Blanca from the ever dangerous Tony Dutrow shedrow.
