Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (BOOM BOOM KABOOM) (5-1) - This colt is racing third back from a 3.5-month break and is dropping into a claimer with blinkers on. He missed by just over two lengths at Belmont facing tougher July 5, and it earned him a career-best figure. This $100K purchase gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #10 (Fluent in Sarcasm) (9-2) - He had a very wide trip when finishing five lengths behind 'Boom Boom Kaboom' July 5 at Belmont. Trainer Mike Maker drops him back down, and leading rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. is aboard for this attempt.
3rd pick: #7 (Disciplanarian) (6-1) - One of several 4yos entered, he finished 3rd of 12, missing by three lengths at this level June 13 at Belmont. It was his first race since March 6 and confirmed that he prefers the turf. Competitive in all three on it, trainer Dave Donk has Jose Ortiz aboard.
4th pick: #4 (Tempesta) (5-1) - This speedy gelding was involved every step when he missed by a 'neck' at this level June 13 at Belmont. By far a career-best, it was his first-ever against fellow New York-breds, and he must be left in the mix.
