RACE 1: 3-2-6-5
RACE 2 - Tough Race here
Red Hot Maker Barn Sends out two in here with the 1 Hurricane Breeze and 3 Little Red Frog
1 Hurricane Breeze Has been knocking at the door in her last couple starts for alw of 50k drops in for clm of 40k very dangerous.
5 Gone Glimmering and 3 Little Red Frog are coming out of the same race where they took off the turf where Gone Glimmering got the win and was much the best.
3 Gone Glimmering- Jose Ortiz Gets off the 1 Hurricane Breeze to ride here going 2nd time out for the Joe Sharp Barn, Were she has not had a clean break out of the gate in her last two outings.Last time out hit the gate and still got up to win. Two back Got off to slow start and then was rushed up to the lead which burnt her out.
7 Leeway - Finished 2nd last time out when dropping down to this 40k level for the first time. Rosario/ Clement Duo is very dangerous here.
4- Make or Break- Had nowhere to go in her last outing being blocked on the rail and having a lot left in the tank. Never had a chance to run. Think she bounces back here third time off the bench for the Atras barn with Dylan Davis aboard.
6 Bella Rose- comes in here 2nd time off the layoff for the Thomas Morley Barn who had a nice winner yesterday at a price. Drops back down to clm of 40k where she finished 3rd losing by only 3 lengths to the odds on favorite and a head bob to the 3 Little Red Frog.
8- Mopolka- Was very impressive last time out getting the win when getting back on the turf for the 2nd time in her career and coming out of the 12 hole. Outside post again today with not that much speed in here is very dangerous and should go off at a decent price in here being 15-1 morning line odds.
2- Dipping in - Took it wire to wire last time out when in for a maiden clm of 40k for the second time of her career. Johnny V gets the call today.
5 Business Cycle-is going to be tough to beat in here coming in 1st time off the claim for the Rudy Barn after claiming him last time out for 16k and dropping down to 10k today. Loves this Belmont Surface being 5 for 5 in the money over this surface.
8- Local Hero- Comes in here 2nd time off the bench for the Gary Gullo Barn. If he runs back to the race two back in Feb at Aqueduct where he won by 3 lengths scoring a 93 buyer, he should be real tough here. But there are some question marks with him being sideline after that big win. .
3- Wushu Warrior- Drops down in class today, adds blinkers and takes some weight off with apprentice jockey Maquez aboard. Should be right in the thick of things at a decent price 8-1 morning line odds.
7 Deep Sea- Not totally sold on him but comes in here for red hot Orlando Nada barn who you never can count out, and is 2 for 4 in the money over this surface and 7 for 15 going this distance
PICKS- 5-8-3- AND 7 or 1 .
3 Build to Suit- will be tough to beat in here for the Chad Brown barn with Jose Ortiz getting the call. 5 for 6 in the money over this surface and 3 for 3 in the money going this distance. And 9 for 10 in the money over a fast track
5 Soldado- Comes in here off a layoff but its Todd Pletcher with Johnny v aboard.should be well fit and ready to rock and roll. 4 for 6 in the money lifetime.
4 Mihos- is 1 for 1 at this distance.and 2 back ran against code of honor in the grade 3 westchstr. Might need a race coming off a little layoff.
1 Lenstar( Long Shot)- should be mian speed in here and try and take this wire to wire for the Zito Barn, Rac very well over at Owlawn back in april a tough track to win at. Only thing is might need a race under belt coming off layoff.
Race 5 - Could be a tough Race
The Pletcher Barn send out two in here with the 4 Gunman and 1 Gimme Some Mo out of these two i prefer the 4 Gunman
1Gimme Some Mo- Johnny V gets off the 4 to ride here. Is coming off a 6 month layoff but ran pretty good last time out when trying the turf for the first time but did give up down the stretch and got tired so feel like he might need a race.
4 Gunman- Finished 4th by only 2 lengths behind the 6 Break Beat last time out. When coming off a 10 month layoff and stretching out to a mile and a sixteenth for the first time. Should be well fit in here today and take a big step forward with Jose ortiz getting the call today and getting off the two to ride here.
6 Break Beast- Just missed at this level the last outing when coming off a layoff and getting on the turf for the first time. Finishing right behind Scanno who went on and won 2 straight. As well as beat the 4 Gunman in their last outing. Should be well fit in here and tough to beat for Danny Gargan/ Carmouche Duo.
8 - Summer Tune- Shipps in here from Monmouth after finishing 2nd last time out after being moved to the Jerry Hollenoder barn. Always likes this 3 year old filly is 3 for 4 in the money over the turf as well as 3 for 4 in the money lifetime
