Acclamation can wire ’em in Eddie Read

If the trip to New Jersey for the United Nations Handicap at Monmouth Park on July 3 didn’t take too much out of him, I like Acclamation to win today’s $300,000 Eddie Read Stakes at Del Mar.

The 4-year-old son of Unusual Heat is 1 for 3 over the Del Mar turf and, before his ninth-place effort in the United Nations, had wired the field in both the Grade 2 Jim Murray Handicap and Grade 1 Charles Whittingham Handicap at Hollywood Park.

Enriched and The Usual Q.T. figure to be sitting right behind Acclamation. If Acclamation goes too slow, Enriched might even gun for the lead, which would set it up nicely for The Usual Q.T. and the classy Loup Breton, a 6-year-old Irish-bred who lost by only a neck while finishing third in the Grade 1 Turf Classic at Churchill Downs on May 1.

I’ll go with Acclamation, Loup Breton and The Usual Q.T. as my 1-2-3 selections.

  1. Come on, A-Dub. You need to realize that you can draw a line thru anything that happened at Hollywood Park this spring/summer. Acclimation being two of those things.It was the biggest farce of a meet.
