Belmont Park, the Holiday Place to Be


The nominal feature on today's Showcase program for New York-breds at Belmont Park is the Commentator for 3 year ods and up going a flat mile.

No one could argue for the legitimacy of either Saratoga Snacks (2-1), apparently pleased to be back in the Sciacca shedrow, or the Chad Brown entry of Readtheprospectus or Bond Vigilante, of which only one will start, as the public's choice.

Rather, we will throw deep with the late developing, five year old Summer Place To Be (10-1). Following a recent trainer change to Thomas Morley, the gelding responded with a career best effort and his sheets development was not a stark departure to his prior career best going a sixteenth farther on today's surface.

Either way, the barn has given him 7 + weeks of recovery time and he's in here nicely weighted and positioned outside in a relatively small field of six [or fewer] at scratch time Monday.

Taking Summer Place to Be at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with his rivals above.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1753

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 528-333

Amount Wagered: $3,506 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,612.90

Profit to Date: $106.90

Like this Mott Trainee A Lot


Strange spot for the Bill Mott-trained A Lot in today's Paradise Creek, an excellent second in a Grade 2 behind the budding turf star Divisidero into a listed stakes, back in relatively quickly.

Even if this is a prep for something richer and more important, the colt turning back to 7 furlongs should have this field at his mercy should he repeat his last. The one to beat clearly is Coroninthebarbarian, badly in need of a confidence builder; this is a good spot for that, the choice notwithstanding, making his first start for new trainer Chad Brown.

Taking A Lot to win, no price restrictions, and boxing the exacta with Croninthebarbarian.
