Feeling “Trapped” At Belmont (10/1)

Oct 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Muddy and yielding with races 1,2, 4 and 11 off the turf for the Saturday card.  Even with the bad weather, we still have a tremendous card featuring several grade 1′s and some of the best horses in the country.  However, the track condition will have a great effect on the card, especially in the early races where young horses meant for the turf will have to navigate a wet main track.

In race 7, The Grade 1 Vosburgh, Trappe Shot (#8) is 3 for 3 at Belmont, loves a wet track and gets a great stalking post — should win unless someone gets away with soft splits.  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #3.

In race 8, The Grade 2 Kelso, Jersey Town (#1) loves the mile distance and moves up over wet ground — should run down Uncle Mo (#3) late at a decent price.  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #3.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, Drosselmeyer (#5) loves Belmont and gets back to main track — superior wet track breeding and will get overlooked in the wagering.  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
