On to Belmont !!

We go into this Friday with another top level race to observe at the might Belmont Park.

Belmont Park Race 9 {True North~G2~6 Furlongs~4 year old~Stakes}
A terrific match-up of nine quality horses.  This could be a speedfest of the highest order.  It might benefit the horse who lays off the pedal a bit and accelerates through the stretch.  All but two have hit the triple-digit speed number mark in their career.  The other two have come very close.  It will be an extremely exciting race.

#7 Palace (J. Ortiz / L. Rice) could benefit greatly from a hot pace with his pressing/tracking running style.  He is coming into this race with off a brief rest period.  This lad has the third highest speed number at the distance and has put in three strong workouts.  He'll have the leaders in his sight going into the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

#4 Integrity (J. Velazquez / C. Brown) should challenge from a forwardly placed position with the third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and four sharp, peaking workouts.  This lad enjoys the Belmont track.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#2 Marriedtothemusic (C. Velasquez / L. Rice) will be part of the speed contingent motoring on the front end.  He holds the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number and two robust peaking workouts.  This guy also holds the fourth highest (tie) speed number at the distance.

#6 Salutos Amigos (I. Ortiz / Jacobson) should be in the mix with the third highest last out speed number at a slightly longer sprint, a two race progression, and five speedy, peaking workouts.  He also holds the second highest speed number over the Belmont oval.
