BEST BET (Race No. 3, 2:15 p.m. ET/11:15 a.m. PT)

Sharp upstate conditioner Jeremiah Englehart’s #6 Charleston Strong (9-2 morning line) adds blinkers and retains Luis Saez. Quick work says he’s ready. Wager: $10 Win & Place on #6 and $2 Daily Double of #6 & #4. ($22)

 

PRICE PLAY (Race No. 4, 2:49 p.m. ET, 11:49 a.m. PT)

#4 I Love Jaxson (morning line 12-1) poised for big, fast-track effort off bullet work at Monmouth. Gelding benefits from turn back to seven furlongs and positive rider change to Luis Saez. Wager: $5 to Win, Place & Show on #4. ($15)

 

EXACTA EXTRA (Race No. 5, 3:21 p.m. ET, 12:21 p.m. ET)

Eight maiden fillies going in turf sprint. Mr. Ed likes these four: #2 Dame Time (morning line 4-1), #5 Tuscan Queen (3-1), #7 Cease and Desist (6-1) & #8 Six Feet Apart (5-2). Wager: $2 Exacta Box of 2,5,7 & 8. ($24)
