In race 8, Funny Guy (#1) goes first time turf for crafty turf trainer and should sit a perfect trip right behind all the speed and prevail late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 4.

In race 3, Munchkin Money (#2) has raced best on non firm turf and this course with still have some give in it — makes last run to win!  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Fast and firm for the Father’s Day card, but storms are in the forecast so watch out for any changes in track conditions.  Yesterday was horrible here, but a great night followed at Churchill with 4 winners on top (including two 5-1 best bets) so I hope that translates back at Belmont today!

In race 8, The Grade 3 Poker, Clyde’s Image (#1) should sit right behind Dr. Edgar (#9) and run that one down late as the second choice — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck to all the fathers out there!
