Woodbine 2, 3, 6, 10

Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Belmont 8, Gulf 10 on the free page. Pay-side has Churchill 5, Woodbine 6.

Should be OK for the ultraobvious #6 Lady Eli in Santa Anita 5. In Race 7 there, we tiptoe around the morning-line fave and go instead with #8 Enola Gray, #6 Juno.

Wild-open in Arapahoe 8, wild-open. #5 Super One can live up to that billing.

Northlands 6 has the fave #2 Rock Victor seeming legitimate. Next race there, it’s the cold-punch box of #3 Killin Me Smalls, #6 Hold the Giant.
