Jun 5th, 2021 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks, Triple Crown

In race 10, The Grade 1 Manhattan, Master Piece (#5) tuned up nicely in return against lesser, but should sit a perfect ground saving trip here and get up in time at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 4.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Metropolitan, By My Standards (#5) has faced some good ones going longer and got a useful prep in return — lots of speed to set up late run at a decent price here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.

In race 4, The Grade 2 Brooklyn, Rocketry (#4) needed last and now gets a fast pace to set up patented late run in marathon — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 7.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Belmont Stakes, Hot Rod Charlie (#4) ran great in Derby and should be close to the pace and wear these down in stretch at around 4-1 or so — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
