Superfecta Sunday at Belmont, Act II

We look to Belmont on this Superfecta Sunday and a competitive TURF allowance race.  It should be a good handicapping challenge with a large sized field.

Belmont Park Race 9 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~NY~Allowance}
A good field of eleven will take to the Turf for this allowance feature.  The groups individual high speed numbers are only separated by a handful of digits.  It should be a highly competitive race on a cool, crisp, sunny kind of New York day.  Let's try to cobble a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#7 American Buffalo (W. Garcia / Gullo) could surprise with the second highest (3-way tie) last out speed number, a five race progression, and a nimble work over the Belmont track.  He has scored a victory at this distance with a decent speed number.  He is our bronze horseshoe selection, mounting a pressing attack.
$4 SHOW.

#3 Sleepy Freud (C. Velasquez / Rice) will challenge with the highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and one superb Belmont workout.  He has had good sucess over the Belmont track from a tracking position.

#4 Hope Still Springs (Castro / B. Brown) looks to continue his in the money record of 100% at this distance.  He has the fourth highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two salty Belmont workouts.  He should be forwardly placed for his challenge.

#9 Owen Rico (Castellano / Bush) will be stretching out at this distance after securing one of the second highest last out speed numbers.  He is working a two race progression in his two career starts and has put in two solid workouts at Belmont.  He should be the leader of the pack.
