Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (YANKEE EMPIRE) (5-1) - He's facing winners today after getting his maiden win here July 22. Clearly improving, this stalker is nicely spotted and gets a small edge with John Velazquez staying aboard. In this competitive contest, make sure you box your wagers.
2nd pick: #6 (Ink Splotz) (9-2) - Very fast from the gate, he moves back to the dirt after having no chance here in a grass sprint when he was bounced around at the break. A maiden winner on the dirt at Belmont June 11, he was a length better than 'Yankee Empire' that afternoon. A win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Dangerous Edge) (4-1) - One run type finished 3rd here facing a bit tougher at this distance July 30. Nicely spotted today, he has a good post, and Irad Ortiz, Jr. stays aboard. In the mix.
4th pick: #3 (Southern Bridge) (3-1) - He has early speed, is dropping in class, switching from grass to dirt, and is cutting back in distance. Capable on the dirt, he's a threat with his 'A' game.
