NICK’S PICKS, CLN JUNE 8, DAY 9

THE POWER OF THREE – “Super” Sheldon Russell won three races on yesterday’s card, a good day. While there are jockeys that would relish such a feat, the”riding triple” has become ordinary on Colonial’s live days. Sheldon joins Luis Garcia, Horatio Karamanos, Rosemary Homeister and Eric Camacho who have already spotted up at the 3-point line this meet. Who’s next?
