With bad weather in NYC, we’ll join Richie Saber with a “turf meets surf” selection. The Cecil B. DeMille Stakes to be run at one mile on the turf. Should be a big production with the size of this field. Top choice is No. 1 Hit the Road. Toss the B.C. race as he had a wide trip throughout. Like his workout reports. No. 12 Last Opportunity shows up from Europe and is in the ultra-capable hands of trainer Neil Drysdale. No. 11 Smooth Like Strait has had favorable morning workout reports and should appreciate more distance. No. 6 Fore Left tries turf for the first time after a solid race up north on synthetic.
