Going In A Winning “Direction” At Belmont (6/3/20)

Jun 3rd, 2020 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the belated opening of the Spring Meet at Belmont — great to have NY racing back, but I am going to miss the challenging cards at Oaklawn and Churchill which kept us in the game throughout the last several months.  There are bad storms in the forecast so watch out for changing track conditions and races taken off the turf.  I will provide dirt only picks in case that happens!

In race 1, Star of the West (#4) debuted last at Saratoga and chased a very fast pace at a demanding 7 furlongs and tired late — Rudy has great numbers with blinkers on and the price will be right.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 5.

In race 4, Business Cycle (#3) cuts back to most effective distance and should sit right off the pace and wear these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 (Best Bet) with 9 and 5

Race 2: 8, 2 and 1

Race 3: 5, 3 and 1

Race 4: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 5: 10, 9 and 12  Dirt: 2, 10 and 15

Race 6: 7, 1 and 3  Dirt: 15, 13 and 8

Race 7: 11, 10 and 1

Race 8: 1, 5 and 10  Dirt: 13, 6 and 11

Race 9: 1 and 3

Race 10: 1, 7 and 4
