1 Minit Maus, 8 Appreciate, 5 Petalite, and 7 Positive Skew all coming out of the same race appreciate had the toughest trip.
1 Minit Maus - ran very well on her debut back on June 5th finishing 2nd stalking the speed and just getting outrun by a ⅕ shot chad brown horse. Think she will be well fit in here coming out 2nd time off the bench, not to happy with the post position but if she brakes out of the gate nicely and stalks the speed in here she should be right in the thick fo things
8 Appreciate -Goes 2nd time off the bench for the Toscano barn. The last outing, she was stuck on the rail. As well as a real tight hold on her around the 1st turn and the back threw her stride off. Still came stong at the end to get up for 4th, only losing by two lengths. She should be well placed here today in the 8th spot and has a real good shot of winning this one—5/9 in the money of this Belmont Turf Course.
2 Sun Summers Shipps in here For the Jane Cibeli barn going 2nd time off the bench with a drop down in class and gets Irad Ortiz Jr Aboard today. She is 2 for 3 in the money going this distance. And is 1 for 1 with a second in the mone over this Belmont Surface
9 Sky Kitten Goes 2nd time off the bench for the David Donk Barn and stretches out to a mile and sixteenth with getting Luis Saez aboard today. She has faced much tougher competition in the past being in open company stake races drops in the first time for a tag today.
MY PICKS- 8-1-2-9
RACE 2 - Looks like there is a lot of speed in here
5 Shamrock Kid- goes 2nd time off the bench, and stretched back out to the preferred distance where he is 2 for 2 in the money going this distance and 2 for 4 in the money over this surface. A lot of speed in this race which can set up perfectly for him closing on strong down the stretch.
4`Invest - Goes 1st time off the claim for the Chris Aliva Barn, which he got the win last time out going a mile for claimers of 16k. Has some early speed and should be stalking the pace in here with the cut back to 7 furlongs today. Very dangerous in here and should be right in the think of things. 3 out of 4 in the money over this Belmont surface
6 Foolish Ghost has been knocking at the door his last couple outings with previous time setting fast fractions and weakening late. Irad Ortiz Jr gets the call today and should place him right here he needs to be to try and get the win here today.
O SHEA CAN U SEE scored an 80 buyer last time out 1st time back off the layoff in a tight race finishing 3rd by 2 lengths. The Linda rice barn who claimed him again for 16k after losing him for 10k.
MY PICKS- 5-4-6-1
Rudy Rodrguez sends out 2 in here with the 1 King Of Ranch going 1st time off the claim from the maker barn. Today, Adds Blinkers and cuts back in the distance, which should be running for the lead in here trying to take this field wire to wire. and 2 Kumar comes in here 2nd time off the bench and cuts back to 7 furlongs today with getting Irad Ortiz Jr Aboard today.(Very Dangerous in here)
8 Bourbon Currency 7 Yes and Yes and 10 Standup all coming out of the same race with Bourban Currency Tracking down Yes and Yes down the stretch and got up for the win.
Bourbon Currency - was fresh coming into the last outing when getting the victory with running very well down at Gulfstream Park with finishing 2nd down there with his last for outings. Going to be tough to beat in here. Will try and beat him here which he is very beatable
Yes and Yes ran a great race the last outing coming off a 10-month layoff and being in post 10 out of 11 horse. I think he comes back in here today 2nd time off the bench and runs big. Should possible see he go off at a reasonable price as well.
10 Stand up - Finishing 3rd in there coming on strong at the end. Stretched out to 7 furlongs today and takes the blinkers off going 2nd time off the bench . is 2 for 2 in the money over this course should be right in the thick of things today.
3 Vineyard Sound(Long Shot) Keep an eye on this one today, going 2nd time off the bench for The Edmund Davis Barn, who has been having a good meet so far at Belmont. Getting back on the turd where he ran pretty well back in 2019 while under the Brad Cox barn and if it gets taking off the turf due to rain. He should be game in here being 3 out of 5 in the money over a Sloppy Track.
3 Timely Tradition is my pick of the day. Last outing winning at Oaklawn park May 2nd for an ALW of 40k. Which is a very tough track to ship in and succeed at. Going for her 3rd straight win in a row. Being 6 out of 9 in the money over this Belmont surface and 9 out of 11 going this distance.
MY PICKS - 3- 7 - 8 (LONG SHOT) 1 OR 2 Depending on how they look in the paddock and warming up.
8 (LONG SHOT) Comes in here 2nd time off the bench and running at Churchill downs the last outing is (very tough course to win at ) finishing 3rd.
