First Post: Sunday, July 9, 2017

This is the best version of a song that will always make the people smile.

Free ones: Rundown…

Belmont 2, 3, 4, 9
Gulfstream Park Proper 7
Los Alamitos Thoroughbreds 1, 9

Pay-side (Weekday/Weekend): Today…

Arlington 1, 3, 5, 8
BelTerra 2, 8
Ellis Park 2, 3, 9
Laurel 1, 5, 6, 7
Lone Star 1, 3, 8, 9
Monmouth 8
Suffolk 8
Woodbine 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Pay-side has Woodbine 8.

Arapahoe 8 is wild-open, wild-open. Four live-longshot-type plays: #5 Ms Wild Rush, #1 Starry Starry Skys, #4 Lively Tale, #10 Last Dragoness. Choose wisely.

Hoo-boy. Bypassing the top two morning-line choices in Belmont 7, going instead with #1 Too Much Tip, #2 Golden Mischief. This could lead to excellence — or serious injury.

Grants Pass (where?) 9 has a cold-puncher’s box of #6 Arigato, #5 Ain’t Tellin’.

Singling-out #3 Princess Dream in Suffolk 9.
