Dream Bigger looking to Keep Winning Streak Alive in Today's Mike Lee Stakes
6 Road Home- Was knocking at the door in his last 2 outings at Aqueduct, Going a mile finishing with a 3rd and a 2nd two back. Finishing behind some good horses, one being a real nice horse out the Chad Brown Barn. Takes Drop-in class today 1st time in for a tag and stretches out to 1 mile and a sixteenth, which i think will help a lot.
3 Ghost On a Mission goes 1st time out as a gelding, Turf to Dirt and is Dropping in for a tag for the 1st time as well as taking the blinkers off today. Should be well fit and like the stretch out to a mile and a sixteenth. The James Jerkens barn brought this one down to Florida with them to run, very had hopes on this one.
2 A Drop of Burbon- comes in here with going turf to dirt. I like how The Raymond Handel Barn wheels him back after running 8 days ago here. Should be well fit in here today going 2nd time off the bench. He should be a long shot in here and might be a shot to take with this Race being wide open.
8 Fried Rice King goes 2nd time at this level for the Pletcher Barn after running in the slop last time out down at Gulfstream finishing 3rd. Gets go-to rider today Johny V. Should be right in the think of things, but if he is close to being the Favorite, I will look in another direction, not 100 percent sold on this one in here today.
9 Cause I said So comes back off a 4-month layoff for the Michelle Nevin Barn, who has been having a good Belmont meet so far. Is 3 out of 4 in the money lifetime and has some good set of works in the am over this surface should be fit and ready to go today. Possible be at a reasonable price today
7 Judicial Restraint goes 2nd time out for Chad Brown/ Castellano Duo, showed a pretty lousy debut but been training well in the AM and never can count out This Barn.
MY PICKS- 2- 6-3-9-8
You got some speed in this one a couple of them could be Gunning for the lead with the 1/3/4/5/10
5 Keep Your Distance Goes 1st time off the Claim for the Toscano Barn After Claiming this horse last time out on Feb 21 for 16k when she finished 3rd by two lengths going 6 furlongs gets the extra half of Furlong today which i like and won going this distance two back.( 3 out of 6 wins going this distance and 1 for 1 over this Belmont surface. Has some early speed and could also stalk the pace in here. Gets Eric Canel back aboard today who won with her two back.
2 RADIANTRITHYM goes 1st time off the claim for The Gullo Barn who has gotten off to a red hot meet here so far at Belmont. Today, gets Jose Aboard is 2 for 6 in the money going this distance 3-1 morning line possible be close to Favorite, which if so i would look elsewhere but wouldn’t leave out of exacta and Triples.
1 Cold Hearted Pearl is Coming off a win last time out beating the 2 in here and is 2 or 4 in the money going this distance. Has some early speed should be gunning for the lead with coming off the rail today.
3- Distinctive lady - Goes 2nd time off the Claim for the Dominick Schettino Barn after winning last time out 1st time off the claim down at Gulfstream for OC/ 12K scoring a 75 buyer best of a career Luis Saez aboard and staying aboard on his return back today off suspension. 6 out of 11 in the money going this distance and 2 out of 3 in the money over this Belmont Track. Race can set up Perfectly for her with a lot of speed and stalking this pace.
10 Miss Jak - Takes a big drop in class for the Rob Astras barn which has gotten off to a slow Belmont meet so far. Finished 3rd last time out 1st time off the claim for 32k in for 16k today. It will be tough to beat been working well in the mornings.
8 Exceed The Goal(Long Shot) If you’re looking for a small price (which i call MEAT), don’t overlook this one. Were she is 2 for 3 in the money over this surface with one win and one second. Also been training very well for Trainer/ Owner Jeffery Englehart. Very Dangerous in here and can be your sleeper in here.
MY PICKS- 5-3-10-8-2
RACE 3 - This is a tight race in here and very excited to see this Race
7 Stolen Holiday 3-year-old Filly out of War Front Won on her debut going this distance down at Tampa Bay winning going away by four lengths scoring a 73 buyer. Gets Jose Ortiz Aboard today. McGaughey has been red hot this meet so far especially with his horses coming out of races down at Tampa -
5 Cat’s Pajamas Broke her Maiden last time out at Churchill on May 17 coming off a year layoff and getting on the Grass for the 1st time winning by two lengths with Johny v aboard. Love her shipping in here to run today after a big win last time out at tight Churchill downs track and goes 2nd time off the layoff! Could see her go off at a reasonable price in here and will be very tough in here !!
1 Linny Kate is going to be tough to beat in here and should go off at the Favorite in here after winning her debut going a mile at Gulfstream scoring an 85 buyer.
2 Love Beach (Long Shot) Ships in here today for the Stidham Barn were she has been working very good in the mornings at Fairgrounds. She ran very well as a 2-year-old before being laid up for a little bit with winning on her debut and finishing 3rd at Lauren in 200k stakes. Joel Rosario gets off the 6 in here to ride her today. Should go off at a reasonable price in here
3 Lashar - Broke her Maiden last time out going a mile at Gulfstream for the Mark Casse Barn, scoring a 78 buyer and has some excellent works down at Palm Meadows. Saez stays aboard today and should be closing on strong.
MY PICKS - Top Pick: Depending on the board and how they look and Warm-up before 5 or 7 with 1-2.
My Picks 5/7-1-2
4 Ocean Fire will be tough to beat in here and should be the heavy Favorite where she has been knocking at the door being 7 out of 9 in the money lifetime/ 5 for 5 in the money going this distance. Comes in here 3rd time off the bench for the Kimmel Barn.
MY PICKS - 4-7-1 -11 LONG SHOT
11 Queendom wheel back here today after running here 11 days ago Goes Turf to Dirt Today 2 out of 5 in the money going this distance and 1 or 2 in money over this surface. Drops in for tag today and think she runs well 2nd time off the bench for the Carlos Martin Barn, who had a winner yesterday in the 1st Race. - MY PICK
Bruce Levine Sends out two in here with the 7 Elegant Rose who has some early speed and drops down in class today, with 2 out of 3 money going this distance and 2 for 2 in the money over this surface. Her Stable Mat 10 Remembering Bobbie also has some early speed, and Jockey Carmouche decided to satay aboard her out of these two. Think they both might need a race.
14 Much Muchacha ships in here today for Train Harold Wyner being 2 for 3 in the money lifetime. The last outing was way out of her class drops back down to where she can be a big upset in here.
MY PICKS- 11-9- 13(LONG SHOT)- 2 - 10
The 2 Blackline and 4 Spirit Animal are going to be tough to beat in here. But I like this 7 Megacity who ships in here today for the John Stephens Barn going 2nd time off the layoff after running in ALW of 50k down at Gulfstream. Should be well fit today and could be right in the thick of things if she runs back to her race 2 starts again where she won scoring an 82 buyer. Jose Ortiz gets the call today 12-1 morning line !!!
