The dog days of summer are not upon, and we already have something hot for you to take a look at before wagering.

In Race #4 at Belmont on Thursday, take a gander at #4 Flying Dismount. He’s going 1 1/8th mile over the greensward.

A solid runner who has seen better runners. This colt has the services of Garrett Gomez for Christophe Clemente. Clemente is off to the races winning at a 35% clip. Gomez is a 19% winner over the weeds, and has a 49% ITM record.

This guy makes his third start off of a layoff, where Clemente wins 35% and is ITM 65%. In 2007 and 2008 he ran against graded company. Thursday he goes up against claiming runners for the first time. Clemente is a 21% winner and a 61% ITM claiming trainer.

This looks like a solid opportunity to cash in big. Be sure to dial up and get the rest of the card to stretch out for the multi-race exotics.
