It’s Belmont Stakes Day and we have horse racing picks! The big race does indeed look very interesting with a nice full filed and perhaps a favorite that could be vulnerable (unless it starts pouring rain according to some). Prior to the Belmont Stakes there is basically a mini Breeders Cup card on tap at Belmont Park. Let’s take a couple swings with a few bombs that could spice up a ticket. This first one profiled is a real skull crushing turf sprint with a full field of fourteen.
Race 6 – G3 Jaipur 4YO and Up 6F (Turf)
9 – Commute
12/1 morning line
Here’s a few reasons why this horse might run well here:
- Really sprung to life the last three on the weeds running figs of 95, 97, and 99 which stack up very well in this bulky and talented crew
- Those last three came going a mile on the green two turns, 5.5F, and then 7F showing some nice versatility.
- In that 5.5F dash with a sizzling pace he rallied nicely from off the zip, was right there late around two turns showing the gas in the tank and could really appreciate this 6F
- Fairly lightly raced 4YO could be just warming up on turf, two snappy drills since that last indicating he seems to be in solid shape and fit and ready
- Trainer fires at 18% in turf dashes and a respectable 15% in graded stakes
Look, this is a huge field and a major scramble. Maybe this guy can sit mid pack and find some room late as opposed to having to take all the heat up front with a cavalry charging after him. Good luck!
