Hump day is here, and it will be hot around the United States. Just bear it as everyone will be sweating these next three days.  So, let’s go to ” Big Sandy” and make some plays.

Belmont Park – Wednesday

Race #3- #5 Every Little Thing (8-5)

Ramon Dominguez ( 22%) up for Gary Contessa (17%). Huge drop in class going from alw 39k down to claiming 10k. Steadied last out, and if you go back two races, you will see that she bobbled 4 wide and that lately trouble has been her name. If you can travel back to April 16th and take a look at a similar level, you will see that she wins by 10 lengths. I like her chances today with a clean trip.

Race #4 – #4 Position Limit (4-1)

Johnny V in the saddle for Todd Pletcher (36%). They win at 35%, and are ITM at 67%. With numbers like that, you can say that early retirement could be an option. First lasix teamed up with a bullet work. This is good news, and more than not it translates into a hot effort. The work was at Saratoga, and the Oklahoma training track is DEEP. If you can post any solid numbers there, you are getting a bonus. The sire wins 17%, and Pletcher in debut action is an 18% roller. The daughter of Bellamy Road looks pretty good, and to me should be a solid value play. I don’t know if you will get close to 4-1, but if you do….. Bet early, and bet often…..

Race #5 – #2 Adagio (2-1)

John V for Dick Dutrow. They win at 50% and are 50% ITM. 1/2 at Belmont, and is 2/2 on the greensward. Last out there was a 5 wide effort rolling down the others. Has not raced in 46 days, and Dutrow is 23% with the vacation runners.

So, bear the heat and stay cool with a few winners. Be sure to flush out the tier levels, and find value anywhere you can find it.

Good luck!

    Great job Ed! Adagio just got beat by a nose, otherwise it would have been a cold $80 pick three. Position Limit put a few shekels in my pocket!

    Thanks ! – I am always glad to see someone hit for a few bucks.

    We will dig up some sweeties for Friday, and be sure to tune in to our show tonight. Graham Motion and Rosemary Homeister are great guests. they will be busy this weekend at Colonial and they were tough to get…
