Belmont Park – Race 6.  Post time: 3:38 ET

6 – Judge Davis (9/2) 

Ran better than the line will show in his debut last month at Saratoga when winding up fourth behind subsequent stakes winner Major General and seems very likely to improve a bunch with experience and distance for a barn that has strong stats with the second-time starter angle.  The son of Distorted Humor retains J. Ortiz, and with a clean break projects to be on or near the lead from the get-go.  He’s listed at 9/2 on the morning line and at or near that price Shug’s colt will offer good wagering value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.


Gulfstream Park – Race 9.  Post time: 6:12 ET

2 – Hot Foot Susie (6-1) 

Debuting daughter of the speed sire Chito breezed a visually pleasing 10 1/5 seconds at the OBS June Sale and then brought $40,000 through the ring, a very good price for a Florida-bred filly with a modest female family.  She’s continued to impress in recent drills over the local main track, so we’re expecting the J. Orseno-trained juvenile to be a major player in this below average affair that is ripe to be won by a fresh face.  At 6-1 on the morning line, she’s worth a small gamble as a win play and rolling exotic single.
