5½F (Dirt) Tremont Stakes, $150k, 2

As Day Two of Belmont Stakes Week gets underway, we are presented with the “Astoria Stakes” version of a sprint for budding 2-yr-olds. This time it is the boys turn to take the sandy stage in Elmont, and though we have a short field, it has some interesting lines for inquiry.

With Royal Ascot just around the corner, trainer Wesley Ward will be dusting off his top hat, and getting his bags all packed. Before he heads to the “Royal A,” he is sending Overbore #3 to Belmont to compete in this spot. The Speightstown colt was bred by Winstar Farm, and with Joel Rosario aboard, he should be near or at the top of the tote board on Friday. Ward just has such a strong record with these types, that even in New York, he will garner major support.

Rivalling this entry is a colt from the barn of Steve Asmussen called Little Drama #6. He is out of Distorted Humor by way of Dramedy, and watching that debut/maiden victory last time at Belmont, you have to be impressed. That speed fig of 87 that he posted was eye-opening and downright gaudy, as Kendrick Carmouche rocketed from start to finish. Sure, there were only 2 others in the race … technically … still, it was a performance to sit up and take notice, as the West Point Thoroughbreds kid flashes into this race. Carmouche is back, and he should be able to add to that opening salvo.

As for others, this is the type of race where it is extremely difficult to know who is going to take money. I wouldn’t necessarily try to talk anyone off a horse they like, especially considering these 2-yr-olds are still figuring out that this is a racetrack they are running on, and not a field. Precocious and headstrong, trainers are hoping they can eke out a win. Will we see some of these down the road … say, at Del Mar for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile? Stay tuned …

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Exacta Cold, 6 w 3
