Belmont Stakes Day: Longshot Horse Racing Pick for G2 Woody Stephens

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 race profiled is a nice big and juicy field of 3YO going the tricky distance of 7/8ths of a mile.


Race 7 – G2 Woody Stephens 3YO 7F


3 – Dig Deep


8/1 morning line


Here’s a few reasons why this horse might run well here:


  • This 3YO has really gotten good in his last two spins around the oval. Fired a 95 in a two turn 7F race last out and a 94 fig in a one turn mile the race prior.  This 7F should be a perfect fit for this horse
  • Been away about seven weeks and the trainer fires away at 31% of a 31-60 day break, trainer is 25% overall on the year
  • Nice set of steady drills during the break keeping his fitness level high and fresh
  • Should be able to stalk from mid pack here and has the pace to stay within range and work out a decent trip

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.  This is a very tough distance to sprint and many times those horses with success at a mile run very well at 7F.  Good luck!
