Superfecta Sunday at Belmont

The excitement builds.  It is Belmont Stakes week.
On this Superfecta Sunday we seek a little fine tuning for this Saturday's big event at "Big Sandy".  Today we look in on a nice one mile route at expansive Belmont Park.

Belmont Park Race 7 {1 mile~3 year old Up~Claiming}
A terrific field of ten will go to the gate in this afternoon claiming feature. There is a ton of speed, most of which is in the inside posts.  The pace could greatly benefit the trackers and closers.  The lines are drawn fairly evenly with respect to speed numbers at the distance.  One group will be battling to hit the board.  The other group seeking to improve and take a spot on the board.  It should be a great race.

#9 Springcourt (Franco / Gullo) should benefit from a wicked pace.  He holds the second highest last out speed number and has put in two quality works.  This lad holds the second highest (tie) speed number at the distance.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Kings Village (Luzzi / Jolley) is another that could triumph over the fast pace.  He holds the highest (tie) speed number at the distance.  This guy comes into the race fresh after a thirty-day rest.  His last out was a longer Turf route and he coupled that with a solid work.

#1 Seeker (W. Garcia / Contessa) should be part of the front running pack.  He holds the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one superb workout.  Despite a grueling pace, he should hold on for a piece of the purse.

#4 Street Thug (Montanez / Quick) will also be part of the leading group.  He shares the highest speed number at the distance and has posted a couple of good last out speed numbers that yield in the money finishes.  This son of the great Street Sense is coming into this race fresh with two strong works.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#9 Springcourt  +  #5 Kings Village  +  #1 Seeker  + #4 Street Thug.
