Superfecta Sunday at Belmont, Act2

Superfecta Sunday already!  We take a long look at a Turf allowance at Belmont.

Belmont Park Race 8 {6 furlongs~inner TURF~3 year old Up~NY~Allowance}
An interesting group of twelve will take to the grass in this New York allowance feature.  There is plenty of speed coupled with forwardly placed types in this one.  A tremendous handicapping challenge awaits as many in here are coming off short and long layoffs.  Not to mention that a half dozen have not yet raced over the Turf.  An odd mix of runners.  Let's try to fasten together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#11 Countknickerbocker (Castellano / Domino) might have a slight edge in this speed laden event.  He is coming off an extended layoff, but his last out prior to the layoff is the fourth highest speed number among this group.  He has worked diligently posting two robust workouts in the last thirty days.  Experience over the turf adds to his cause.

#8 Comandante (Maragh / Trombetta) should challenge despite coming off a layoff.  Prior to the layoff he holds the second highest last out speed number and has worked hard posting four strong workouts.  This will be his first on Turf and appears he will enjoy it.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe runner today.
$2 SHOW.

#6 Owen Rico (Chamafi / Orseno) is also coming off a layoff sharing the highest last out speed number, working a three race progression, and posting two hearty workouts.  He also holds the highest speed number over the Turf surface.  This guy should be part of the forwardly placed group.

#4 River Tune (Alvarado / Asmussen) should contend with a couple of o.k. last out speed numbers, but shares the third highest speed number over the surface.  He has put in three mighty workouts prepping for this race.  His running style is versatile which should aid in his effort.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#11 Countknickerbocker  +  #8 Comandante  +  #6 Owen Rico  +  #4 River Tune.
