Belmont Thursday Turfday

There is nothing better than a little summer Turf.  To start our horse racing weekend we peek at a competitive Turf contest at expansive Belmont Park.

Belmont Park Race 8 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old~fillies~Optional Claiming}
A highly competitive group of eight will set their hooves on the grass in this feature race.  There is a little speed coupled with some forwardly placed types which should give the pace a little lift.  All of these gals are extremely close speed number wise.  It should be a randy race.

#3 Alternative Meds (J. Ortiz / Duggan) could surprise coming off a longer route with an o.k. speed number and putting in two resourceful workouts.  She holds the third highest speed number at the distance and has notched two wins at it.  Should a fluid pace unfold, she should be make a quick dash to the wire.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#1 Win for Kitten (Lezcano / Clement) will challenge as the clear favorite.  She holds the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one workout.  This gal not only has the highest speed number at the distance, but is 100% in the money at same in five starts.
$1 SHOW.

#5 Garmentos Girl (Rosario / McGaughey) will be racing on the green for the first time.  She holds the fourth highest last out speed number at a sprint and has put in two robust workouts.  She is another expected to quicken heading into the stretch.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#6 Datts Da Boss (Maragh / Hennig) could make another nice step forward with the second highest last out speed number, a five race progression, and two stout workouts.  She should gain an advantage with a pressing attack.

10 CENT Superfecta

#3 Alternative Meds, #1 Win for Kitten / #3, #1 / #5 Garmentos Girl, #6 Datts Da Boss / #5, #6.
