#1 – Sweet Reason (8-5) = Alex Solis for Leah Gyarmati. They are winning 22% together in 2013, and the barn brings a stellar filly by Street Sense to post. 2/2 at Saratoga this summer, and owns a Last Race Rating of 62. The “Monster Workout” icon is in place, and that was solid going 47.4 at Belmont. A solid closer who loves to rush from the back of the pack should enjoy the extra furlong to work with today.

But, there is a $250,000 Guaranteed Pick Four, and this could be your single if you wish. The connections had one plan this year, and that was to keep him undefeated in 2013. So far, so good with that plan. His Last Race Rating and Composite are a pair of 67’s. His Turf Class Rating is a staggering 86.9, and that is by far the best in the field.
