Today’s ninth race (7/13) at Belmont Park is the $600,000 Gr. I Man O’ War.  This race will consist of three year olds and upward running a mile and three-eighths over the inner turf course.

#1 – Optimizer (2-1): The D Wayne Lukas horse has been running tough as of late and looks like a serious contender here.  Last time out the English Channel horse finished second behind Point of Entry in the Gr. I Manhattan Handicap.  Since moving to the turf Optimizer has finished in the money ten times out from 13 starts.  Joel Rosario will take the mount today.

#6 – Boisterous (9-5):  Cannot be ignored here and one can only wonder if the Distorted Humor horse can finally grab a Gr. I victory.  The Shug McGaughey trainee was last seen winning a Gr. II Stakes back on June 9th at Monmouth Park.  From four tries at this distance Boisterous has three wins and one third.  John Velazquez will ride.

#8 – Exclusive Strike (12-1): The Smart Strike gelding has 12 wins from 34 starts and will be looking to grab his piece of the pie here as well.  The Jason Servis trainee has won over the Belmont turf three times and should be making his move late in the contest.  Irad Ortiz Jr. will be in the saddle.

#7 – Al Khali (10-1): The Medaglia d’Oro horse runs well of layoffs and also seems to fit nicely within this group.  The Bill Mott trainee is closing in on the $1 Million mark and could very well surpass that today.  Junior Alvarado will take the irons on Al Khali.
