Belmont Begins Our Horse Racing Weekend

Thursday is the start of our horse racing weekend.  Today we take a look at a beautiful Belmont mile race.  Excitement brews with the Preakness only nine days away.

Belmont Park Race 7 {1 mile~3 year old~Optional Claiming}
A very nice group of eight will trot to the gate in this feature race.  There is enough speed in this one to keep the pace honest.  All the horses are converging on Belmont from differing tracks up and down the East coast.  It should be a very interesting race.

#8 Tenango (Cohen / Jacobson) has a slight edge with the third highest last out speed number and one peaking workout.  He holds an impressive 90% in the money record in ten career starts.  This guy has the ability to press or track the pace to great benefit.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#3 Make Your Move (Chamafi / McLaughlin) will challenge with the fourth highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three diligent workouts.  He should be tracking the pace ready to close swiftly.
$1 SHOW.

#6 Risk Factor (Prado / Pecoraro) should be prominent in the foray with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two strong workouts.  Expect this guy to be forwardly placed ready to quicken.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#4 Much Stronger (C. Velasquez / Jacobson) should be in the mix with his front running style.  He shows the second highest last out speed number as well as the highest speed number at the distance of this group.

#7 Mister Woolman (Lezcano / Zito) could be in the hunt coming off a longer route and showing two decent last out speed numbers.  He also holds the third highest speed number at the distance.  Two strengthening workouts adds to his cause.

10 CENT Superfecta

#8 Tenango / #3 Make Your Move / #6 Risk Factor / #4 Much Stronger, #7 Mister Woolman.

Last Superfecta Sunday (5/5) Results
Betfair Hollywood Park R3.  Time to Leave Stakes.  We fell short in our 10 CENT Superfecta box effort by missing one of the interests of the four.
Our Bronze Horseshoe runner, Hidinginplainsight, finished 4th.
Bankroll gets slapped and dips to $43.25.
