Most Likely Winner: (Race 8: Sweet Mia #2, 3/1):

The well-meant mare by The Big Beast is going to try and get a win at Belmont for the 1st time in her career. She comes from a solid barn, and even though Charlie Baker doesn’t have an expansive establishment, he can get the job done. Last out on a muddy surface at Aqueduct, she missed the board after having to go very wide in a similar class of race to this one. The only question is her jockey … Joel Rosario was under the weather on Thursday, and had to be taken off his mounts. Regardless, this one looks like a winner … especially with some nice odds that should hover around 3/1. She is a bet …

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #2

 

Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 6: Easy Time #6, 10/1):

Here is a turfer that just needed a race under his belt, in order to get his ’22 started. The HOF trainer sent him to Turfway Park back in March, and we can surmise that his runner did not care too much for the Tapeta. Not all rubberized tracks are the same because last summer he won nicely at Woodbine. I am inclined to overlook that poor showing, and instead pursue this line of inquiry that he will be ready to fire. Dylan Davis gets the call, and lest we forget, this runner was up against some tough “graded” company last year.

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS #6 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)

 

Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 7: Turf, 6F, AOC62.5kn2x, F&M 3+):

I want no part of Tom Morley’s 3-yr-old filly by Runhappy. Fifth Anniversary #1 is facing older females, and that is a tough spot to be in. I am sure Christophe Clement’s Bye Bye #4 will end up towards the top of the tote, so there is not much value there … When it comes to my pick, I am game to back a Mike Maker runner that I have followed for over a year. By Temple City, Amalfi Princess #2 is much more talented than her record or her odds reflect. Last year, the Three Diamonds-owned turf miler turned into a sprinter, and was always up against tough stakes or ALLW Co. I have always thought she just needed the right opportunity to shine. This might be it … going 6F on the grass at Belmont. Her class and current form is not that far off of say, the Clement entry. I am going to get a superb price on this one, and the addition of Luis Saez suits me just fine. His grass exploits just keep getting better, and I like how he finds holes when he needs to down the lane. Let's construct an Exacta that takes advantage of this price horse. Here we go …

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Exacta Wheel, 2 w 1/4
