Thursday’s Race Recap from Belmont at Aqueduct:

(All odds US)

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

Belmont at Aqueduct:

Race 2: 6th@ 8.10/1

Race 4: 7th@ 3.70/1

Race 7: 5th@ 2.30/1

In Race 2, Jen’s Battle stalked the pace and faded in the drive. In Race 4, Proven Hope never got involved in his first race off the claim finishing an uninterested 7th. In Race 7, Silver Strand wasn’t even a shadow of her former winning self, never showing the speed she used to break her maiden finishing a dull fifth. A dreadful day on the betting front but sometimes in this game it’s feast or famine. I’m getting hungry.

We’ll stay right here at Aqueduct for Friday’s races. Fast and firm conditions are expected once again. Let’s get The weekend started with a few winners!

Friday at Belmont at Aqueduct:

Race 8: Daunt - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 10/1)

Allowance runners navigate a mile and three eighths. Without any real standouts here, Daunt offers some value at 10/1 odds. Last time out he was overmatched in the Grade 3 Jockey Club Invitational at a slightly longer 1 1/2 distance but he matched his career high speed figure of 84. That day he finished about a length behind second place finisher The Gray Wizard whom he’ll face again today and that one is 7/2 on the morning line. Daunt has the type of low profile connections that’ll keep the odds fair and Javier Castellano has been riding well here winning at 21%. Bullet workout on October 16 tells me Daunt is ready to fire a big one.

Best of luck to all our members playing Friday’s races from Belmont at Aqueduct!
