Horse Racing Weekend begins at Belmont

We start our horse racing weekend with a little Turf action at "Big Sandy".

Belmont Park Race 7 {7 furlongs~TURF~3 year old Up~Allowance}

A solid group of nine will hit the grass in this Turf sprint. There is plenty of speed to keep a high octane pace. Speed numbers are fairly close.  Interestingly, only a couple have gone this exact distance over the green. It should be a challenging race for the horses and handicappers.

#2 Hidden Vow (Rosario / B. Brown) is coming off an extended layoff with the highest speed number at this distance. This lad has put in three superb peaking workouts in preparation. he loves the Belmont Turf. With significant speed signed on, he could benefit from a tracking and closing run.
$1 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

#6 Glowing Ember (C. Velazquez / Lynch) is also coming off a longer layoff, but was last seen earning a couple of strong speed numbers that match up well with this group. He has put in three stellar peaking workouts in preparation. This lad also loves the Belmont Turf recording a 66% in the money record over it.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Secret of Fortune (Maragh / Englehart) should challenge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two robust workouts. This guy should be forwardly placed coming off a nice freshening.

#1 Manhattan Mischief (Arroyo / Klesaris) should contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one good workout. He is coming up from Parx where he established a 100% in the money record from two career starts. He should be tracking the pace ready to pounce.
