Race 9: The Long Island Stakes (many folks at the track say “Long-giland”) to be run on grass. Top choice is No. 1 Si Que Es Buena. You know we don’t love betting favorites, but this horse looks to be “good.” Her last was a Grade 1 where she stumbled at the start and still gave a “good” account of herself. No. 5 Decorating hasn’t kept this type of company, but her last race at Keeneland produced a sheet figure that seduced us. No. 11 Empressof the Nile is a steady mare and fits nicely here.
My Pick: Win 1 Exacta Box 1-5-11 Trifecta Part-Wheel 1 with 2,5,6,8,10,11 with 2,5,6,8,10,11 AND 2,5,6,8,10,11 with 1 with 2,5,6,8,10,11
