Superfecta Sunday along the Jersey Shore

On this Superfecta Sunday, we enjoy an exciting grade one stakes race along the Jersey shore.

Monmouth Park Race 12 {William Hill Haskell Invitational~G1~1 1/8 mile~3 year old~Stakes}
A top flight group of nine will make their start in this annual summer grade one.  There is significant parity among this group that any horse in the field could win.  The race is filled with speed so a ferocious pace is assured. It may come down to the readiness of those that sit right off the pace to achieve victory.  Our challenge is to put together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#3 Albano (Clark / L. Jones) may have a minuscule edge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three superb workouts.  This lad has the ability to stay close to the speed and launch into the stretch.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#7 Untappable (Napravnik / Asmussen) is the only filly to give challenge to these lads. She enters this competition with a four race win streak, a couple of excellent last out speed numbers, including the highest one at the distance, and two strong peaking workouts. This filly could topple this group with a fiery run from off the pace.

#9 Medal Count (Albarado / Romans) comes into this off a brief freshening after a stunning performance in the Belmont Stakes.  He holds the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superior workouts.  This lad will be closing into what should be a very hot pace.

#2 Bayern (Garcia / Baffert) should be the speed of the speed with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four seriously stellar workouts. He has traveled this distance well and may wire this field.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#3 Albano  +  #7 Untappable  +  #9 Medal Count  +  #2 Bayern.
