Wearing A “Blazer” At Belmont (6/6/14)

Jun 6th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Friday card — one day before the big race and a chance for California Chrome to win the triple crown.  Let me just say that tomorrow’s card is the best handicapping card I have ever seen in New York…..ever!  Five grade 1′s in all and for all the complaining I did for the last several months over the quality of the cards in NY, this 13 race extravaganza may just wipe away all my frustrations and it’s definitely a day to celebrate!  Anyway, let’s see how I do today and remember to see if there are any track biases leading up to the bog day tomorrow!

In race 10, The Belmont Gold Cup Invitational, a 2 mile turf marathon, Sky Blazer (#2) has been crying out for more ground in last few starts and should get a ground-saving trip and a decent pace to set up late run — the price will be right to post an upset here.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and  play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 2.

In race 4, Queen Nine (#1) may be the controlling speed from the rail and can wire these if breaks cleanly — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 2

Race 2: 1 and 4

Race 3: 6 and 5

Race 4: 1 (Best Bet) with 8 and 9

Race 5: 1, 5 and 7

Race 6: 6 and 7

Race 7: 1, 10 and 8

Race 8: 5, 11 and 6

Race 9: 7, 8 and 4

Race 10: 2 (Best Bet) with 9 and 8
