Friday Belmont Turf

There is nothing better than a little Friday Turf.

Belmont Park Race 8 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Allowance}
A smashing group of ten will take to the grass in this allowance feature.  There is enough speed in here to keep the pace fluid.  The speed numbers for all of these competitors are comparable.  It could be a stellar race with any outcome.

#7 Mills (Rosario / Tagg) appears to have a slight edge with the highest (tie) last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and four superb workouts.  This guy could track a solid pace and hit the stretch with a game run.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#2 Odeon (C. Velasquez / Shirreffs) is a California invader coming off a longer route with the second highest last out speed number.  He has put in four solid workouts during a brief layoff.  This guy might be forwardly placed or just off the lead pack, ready to launch into the stretch.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#8 Stormy Len (I. Ortiz / Donk) will challenge sharing the highest last out speed number, working a three race progression, and putting in three sincere workouts.  His versatile running style has earned the highest speed number over the Belmont course.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#10 Bold Dance (Alvarado / Mott) could get back to form with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and three positive peaking workouts.  He holds the highest speed number at the distance which earned him a win.  He could find himself forwardly placed ready to pounce.

#3 North Slope (Saez / McLaughlin) should join the battle with the third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three superior peaking workouts.  Pressing or tracking the pace is his forte and he could steam through the pack.
