BELMONT, RACE 8 (4:40PM ET) // ALLOWANCE // 1 1/16 MILES
EDZO'S PICK: #5 CREED (8/1)
Anticipating moisture in track; that’s the angle with Creed. This is his third race off a long layoff after no excuse in last. Reunited with Jose Ortiz, love the Shug angle. Don’t take anything less than 5-1. #9 Mystic Night is the horse to beat. Win-Place wager on Creed.
CHURCHILL DOWNS, RACE 10 (5:26PM ET) // ARISTIDES STAKES // 6 FURLONGS
EDZO'S PICK: #2 TOUGH LOVE (10/1)
Price player gets a hot pace to run into and turns back in distance from 7 furlongs to 6 furlongs. He enjoys Churchill with wins in 2 of his last 3 local tries. Win-Place wager on Tough Love.
