Stakes Saturday on Belmont Turf

On this Stakes Saturday we take in a great Turf contest in New York.

Belmont Park Race 9 { Man O' War~G1~1 3/8 mile~inner TURF~4 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}
A fine field of six will line up on the grass for this yearly contest. There is plenty of forward placed types to produce a solid pace. All of these lads are close in terms of speed figs and have a good number of victories to their credit. It should be an exciting race.

#6 Hardest Core (L. Saez / Graham) is coming back to racing after a extended layoff. Last year's winner of the Arlington Million, he should be ready to kick his season off on the right hoof. He holds the second highest speed number over the Turf surface and has put in three superb workouts.  This son of Hard Spun, should be forwardly placed ready to roll.
$1 WIN  /  $2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#4 Twilight Eclipse (Castellano / Albertrani) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four inspiring workouts. He holds the second highest speed number at the distance and is 80% in the money from five starts at same. This son of Purim should be traveling very close to the pace ready to strike going into the stretch.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#1 Imagining (I. Ortiz / McGaughey) will contend with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four excellent workouts. He should find himself forwardly placed seeking to undo all challengers. This son of Giant's Causeway is undefeated from two starts at this distance.

#2 Hyper (J. Velazquez / C. Brown) is coming back to racing after a very long layoff. This lad loves the Belmont course holding an 83% in the money record from six starts. A son of Victory Gallop, he will be coming from off the pace looking to close down this field.
