Toga is rapidly approaching, but we cannot let Belmont Park off easy. Let’s Ride.
Belmont Park Race 1: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.Clm 40000n2L
#3 Chloe Rose (6/1) – She made an early move into a quick pace going a mile last time and now cuts back to a sprint. If she can translate her races to turf, she can beat this field. Her breeding suggests she’ll be able to handle the lawn just fine.
#5 Jades Gelly (9/2) – She was favored dropping to this level last time and she had no chance as Rosario wrangled her way back and a slow pace developed. She’ll be more forwardly placed today and we’ll get a much better price.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 90k
#4 Beautiful Farewell (9/2) – This filly finished 3rd vs the boys in her debut last year and is working well off the layoff. She has talent and if she progresses as a 3-year-old she’ll be tough to beat.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.MC 40000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Mazal Eighteen (8/1) – This girl is the clear one to beat off her last turf race in the Ductor’s opinion. She pressed a hot pace going wide and fought hard to the end. She adds blinkers today and is a huge overlay anywhere near this morning line. The connections should keep her price decent.
