*All Races are for Saturday September 15th


Belmont:


Race 1: #10 Elmutahid (5/1) - Showed improved speed in his second start, finishing behind a well-meant shipper that won. Should offer value.

Race 4: #10 Old Man Meese (5/1) - Making his 2nd race back off the layoff and is moving from an open MSW to a statebred event on the turf.

Race 6: #5 Melissa Song (12/1) - Second race back off the layoff exiting a race that was washed off the turf. Puts Blinkers on, which is a 21% move for a 23% barn. Note she was the beaten favorite last time. Value here.

Race 8: #3 Kya One (Fr) (8/1) - The tote-board will tell the tale with him.  Brown is 5 for 10 with first time North American imports. There are no world beaters in this field as the prime contenders are NY-bred or Allowance runners.

Parx:


Race 1: #2 Blissful Tune (6/1) - Has shown improvement since the addition of blinkers and owns quite a bit of speed in a race that seems to be lacking much early zip. Should be prominent throughout on the cut-back.

Race 4: #3 Glib (5/1) - Been facing better of late, and jockey Ho seems to get along well with him. Owns tactical speed and will be close up. Lots to like.

Race 6: #1 Lady Repent (6/1) - Has the leading rider at the track and owns enough speed to make the lead from the rail. Owns a class edge on many of these. Legit threat to go wire to wire.

Race 8: #11 Masquerade (6/1) - Drops back to the level of his most recent romp.  The runner up from that race came back to win at this level and is in this field as well (#10).

Race 10: #6 Go Go Lolo (8/1) - Her only race at the track was a career best effort. Now making her second race off the layoff and should have plenty of pace to run at in here.

Race 12: #11 Mezzano (8/1) - BEST BET!!! Has back to back bullet workouts and appears primed for a big run for a barn that sends them out fresh off the layoff (30%). First time on the turf for a colt with plenty of turf pedigree.

Delaware:


Race 2: #5 Lovely Counselor (12/1) - Making her 3rd start race off the layoff and catches a suspect group. Continues to show improved speed and on the move back down, she could be sitting on a lifetime best effort. 

Race 4: #2 Overlook (8/1) - Catches a short field and is the lone speed. Gets the bug boy back up and cuts back a furlong in distance. Legitimate threat to go all the way on the lead. 

Race 7: #3 Filare L'Oro (6/1) - Talented filly is on top of her game and appears that she has plenty of speed to run at. Should work out a nice covered up journey.
