Sunrise Smarty to Rebound in Waldoboro

Taking a look at today’s feature from Belmont Park, the Waldoboro Stakes, an overnight event that several horsemen have chosen as an ideal comeback spot for their classy runners. Instead, we’ll take the value being offered with Sunrise Smarty (8-1).

When last seen this four-year-old was absolutely on fire when he left the paddock for the G1 Carter at Aqueduct. He was so sharp that he outran many speedier rivals and stayed on gamely until passed by classier foes in midstretch.

The turnback to six furlongs should suit given added recent conditioning, he’s worked sharply since that effort and is nicely drawn outside with Mike Hushion going back to the familiar Channing Hill.

Taking Sunrise Smarty to win at 5-1 or greater, exacta boxes with the Dutrow entry, either half, and the returning Trappe Shot.

Running Totals: (858) 269-176-117 Total Dollar Return: $1,867.10 [win selections only]

A Horse to Watch

With a house full of Mothers Day revelers, there's no handicapping but here's one from the stable mail without further research. I bet on Veiled Prophet off the layup at Keeneland--might even have been a selection in this space--and, sorry, but don't think the connections were too serious that day. Now he shows up in Chicago today, in Arlington's ninth race. I know he's not as fast as these on performance figures, but he will be live here at a price. Taking Veiled Prophet across the board off the possible stiff-and-ship at 8-1 or better.
