Thursday’s Race Recap from Belmont Park:

(All odds US)

Race replays for yesterday’s races from Belmont can be found here:

Belmont Park:

Race 4: 5th@ 0.90/1

Race 5: SCRATCH

Race 8: 4th@ 3.05/1

In Race 4 the first time starter turned out to be LIVE - winning off for fun at 7/1 odds. Just a Nyquist checked in fifth after a mild bid on the turn. In Race 5, our selection scratched at the gate. In Race 8, Spicer stalked the pace and took the lead in mid-stretch but she moved a bit too early and was passed late in the game by three runners.

We’ll head back to Belmont Park for Friday’s races. It’s a BOMBS AWAY FRIDAY, as three of our four selections are HUGE prices.. Once again we’re expecting sunny skies with fast and firm conditions. Let’s get to work!

Friday at Belmont Park:

Race 7: Altare - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 30/1)

Our third of three turf sprints on the day, this time for maiden claimers at six furlongs. No standouts here so I’m taking a bit of a swing. Altare was dreadful first time out in a 1 1/16th turf race basically being eased late. She has five works since that debut effort and she drops into maiden claimers now. What’s interesting to me here is that I remember her dam, Arietta, because she ran very similarly. Dreadful debut effort but when they cut her back to a turf sprint she won off nicely at nearly 23/1 odds in Saratoga back in 2015 (I remember because we had her that day). She ended up winning 2 of 11 starts sprinting on turf for these same connections. My sense is that these connections give their runners a race over the surface to get acclimated to racing before asking them for run. This one is sired by Stormy Atlantic who wins with 15% of his turf sprinters. Surprise package!

Best of luck to everyone playing Friday’s races from Belmont Park !
