Los Alamitos Race Course – Saturday (9-18-21)

LRC 8 ($75k Capote Stakes, 6.5f) Bob Baffert has three live contenders in this spot, and I will side with his highest priced entrant, #3 MONTEBELLO (2-1). The latter just lasted in his debut, and he shipped to NY and rallied for the place in the Funny Cide at Saratoga. #4 Enbarr (7-5) was 2nd in his bow, a race won by his stablemate Pinehurst, and that one clicked right back in the Del Mar Futurity (G1). #1 Rhetoric (9-5) crossed the line 3rd and was placed 2nd through disqualification in his debut. He is stuck on the rail again. Wagers: #3 to win, Exacta 3/1-4, Exacta 1-4/3
