Belmont Turf Friday

A pleasant Friday to take to the Turf.

Belmont Park Race 3 {1 1/16 mile~inner TURF~3 year old Up~Allowance}
A talented group of eight will go to the gate in this early Allowance feature.  There is sufficient speed to maintain a hearty pace.  A number in this one have versatile running styles to make this race very interesting.

#2 Kharafa (Maragh / Hills) should be able to take this one as the favorite.  He holds the highest last out speed number in a stakes race, a two race progression, and four stellar workouts.  He also has the highest speed number at the distance and is 100% in the money at same in three starts.  Difficult to go against this guy, but there will be little value here.
NO Value.

#4 Selection Sunday (Rosario / Goldberg) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number at a longer route and a three race progression.  This guy has a versatile running style that should benefit him greatly.
$1 SHOW.

#1 Ampersand (Solis / Violette) should also contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three robust workouts.  He should come running late.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#7 Irish Lion (J. Velazquez / Jacobson) should be in the mix with the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four athletic workouts.  He can be expected to stay close to the pace and unleash into the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta

#2 Kharafa / #4 Selection Sunday / #1 Ampersand / #7 Irish Lion.
