Belmont Stakes Pick - July 18, 2012
Saratoga opens this Friday and until then our East Coast racing newsletter will come from Delaware Park where the first post is 1:15 PM EST.
From the west today, we take to the opening day of the Del Mar meet with four racing selections. Get all today's premium racing selections here.
West Coast Results: Presque Isle Downs Race #1 Exacta (1-4) $49.00.
Presque Isle Downs Race #3 Top Pick #2 (CAPTAIN GENIUS) $2.50.
Top pick: #5 (IDA JANE) - Lightly-raced filly drops down in price and goes turf to dirt, following a series of even efforts on the local turf racing for $25K. Whatever talent she has should come out against this field, which is pretty weak.
2nd pick: #7 (Silverest) - The probable favorite, she's finished second in both local dirt appearances, the latest coming here at this price and distance July 4th. Blinkers go on and Dan Centeno gets back aboard odd a one race absence.
3rd pick: #2 (Five Star Brew) - She has some speed, breaks need the rail,and she'll be stretching-out in distance in her third back off a 5 1/2 month layoff. Speed is dangerous on this main-track.
4th pick: #1 (Avie Atress) - Drops in price and moves from the local grass to the dirt. Capable of grabbing a share as she's gotten minor awards in 5 of 13 local dirt efforts.
