What a week in horse racing. Finally, Belmont is back then its down to Maryland for Friday and Saturday. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 16000n2L
#5 Scotty (6/1) – He broke his maiden two back with a figure that makes him competitive with this group. Last time, he was well bet vs much tougher and didn’t run a step off the layoff in the slop. He gets a rider upgrade to Saez today and gets back to a fast track.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Clm 50000
#1 Happy Farm (7/2) – Dropping in class 1st off the claim for Atras, he’s the fastest horse in the field, loves Belmont, and is very tough whenever drops to the claiming ranks. Irad hops aboard as well.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. Alw 92000n1x
#3 Binkster (5/1) – He ran very well off the layoff last time setting a hot pace while dueling. He’s the lone speed in this race and is very dangerous wire to wire candidate.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 75k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 King Moonracer (10/1) – To say this boy was rank last time is an understatement. He fought Bravo past the 2nd call and still made a strong move to the lead before tiring. He’s stepping up in class, but the Conductor loves the cutback in distance and is hoping they let him roll today. There is some natural ability here.
