Belmont Park

3 for 4 Saturday at Gulfstream with 7/2, 2/1 and 7/5 winners. The lone loser was Missionaire who got nailed at the wire at 5/1. Solid day, but the Ductor doesn’t play this game for short prices. He wants double digits and he wants them now. Skip. Race 5: 5

Race 5: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 84k

#1 Lawful (4/1) – Making his first start on turf last time at Gulfstream, he had wait behind horses until it was too late. He finished well and gets a much better draw to the inside today. With the rider upgrade to Gaffalione, the Ductor sees him graduating.

 Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 35000b

*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Tetragrammaton (20/1)¬†– The Ductor’s going for the jugular in this race. Trainer Frank Russo stretched him out on the Gulfstream turf 1st off the claim last time and he got cooked in a wicked speed duel. The Ductor likes that they stick to the plan and will try to wire the field again. This gelding has won gate to wire at this distance before and has fast enough races on turf to win at this level. He should be able to get a comfortable lead today and the Ductor will be screaming for him to steal it. Skip.

Race 9: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) OC 25000n1x

#1 High Front (4/1) – Making his 4-year-old debut, he’s working his eyeballs out. He showed talent last year and has won gate to wire on this turf course before. He looks too much for this field to handle.

#2 City Drifter (8/1) – This horse had a bad trip on synthetic last time and now switches back to turf. He loves to win races and is facing a weaker group today than he did last time on turf. With a nice draw, the Ductor sees him working a nice trip sitting behind the #1. He has upset potential.
