A “Close” Call At Belmont (5/27/27)

May 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the terrific Memorial Day card — the Metropolitan has always been one of my favorite races and I typically do well, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 9, The Grade 1 Acorn, Close Hatches (#6) gets good stalking post and will appreciate the return to one turn and run down these late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Ogden Phipps, Tiz Miz Sue (#2) is working bullets for this and may get a fast pace and get first run on closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Metropolitan, Cross Traffic (#1) will try and steal this again –  might hang on if able to control the pace early.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 with 9 and 1

Race 2: 1 and 7

Race 3: 3 with 10 and 8
