Belmont Stakes - July 26, 2012
The weather in the northeast may be a bit off for several days, and our Saratoga selections have taken that into consideration.
We also return to Del Mar again today with four more premium racing selections.
East Coast Results: Saratoga Race #2 Top Pick #5 (HILLSWICK) $5.00.
Saratoga Race #7 Top Pick #4 (REDEMPTION ROAD) $8.50.
Top pick: #6 (DYNAMIC STAR) - Filly has been freshened-up since May 23rd when she just missed at Belmont racing for $50K. Daughter of "Trippi" takes a big drop to race for $20K and is spotted to win in her return by trainer Bruce Brown.
2nd pick: #7 (Aiglemont) - Well backed when debuting for $40K in a sprint on the Belmont infield June 20th, she chased a very fast pace before tiring and the filly she pursued went on to win by 7 lengths. Freshened-up for the past five weeks, trainer Mike Hushion drops her price in half and moves her from the grass to the dirt. Grey filly by the recently pensioned "Holy Bull" has a fine work here five days ago and Dominguez stays put.
3rd pick: #3 (Still Shea to Me) - Blinkers go on this longshot who has been facing much tougher in her first three appearances. She's had tough outside posts in her last pair sprinting on the Belmont turf and will drop down in class and move back to the dirt. Daughter of "Speightstown" can be competitive in this spot.
4th pick: #8 (Knight of Thunder) - Home-bred by "Thunder Gulch" has had excuses in her first pair and will drop into a claimer and make back-to-back starts, both for the first time. In a very good barn (Ed Kenneally) and she should run better on the drop in class.
