A nice 12/1 head bob to go our way to kick Belmont off right yesterday. Time to pounce! Skip!
Race 6: 6½ Furlongs. Mdn 90k
#8 Backnthewoods (8/1) – This colt ran well in the slop in his debut and Potts thought enough of him to put him in a stakes race at Saratoga last time. He had a brutal trip that day and that effort can be ignored. Returning to face maidens today, the Ductor sees him running a big effort.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.Christiecat Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Bay Storm (8/1) – She broke her maiden impressively over this turf course last year and ran very well last time off the bench. She had an impossible trip, shuffled back and hung wide and still finished strong. 2nd off the layoff today, the Ductor loves her.
