Furlong Friday at Belmont Park

We take a look at a Turf sprint at Belmont Park for our Furlong Friday.

Belmont Park Race 8 {Christiecat Stakes~6 furlongs~inner TURF~3 year-old~fillies~Stakes}

A terrific crop of eleven will hit the inner Turf in this sensational sprint.  There is a plethora of speedsters and forwardly placed types to get a good pace on.  Speed numbers are relatively close which makes for a great handicapping and wagering race. A case could be made for any one of these gals to sprint to victory.

#5 Sister Sophia (Lezcano / L. Lewis) could benefit greatly from a wicked pace. She holds the second highest (3-way tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and two robust workouts. This gal is a true closer that should get a sizzling pace to run into.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#2 Devine Aida (Castellano / Clement) should challenge as she moves into a sprinting role. She comes out of a route graded stakes race where she earned a decent speed number. With a modest layoff thereafter, she comes into this one with four hearty workouts. She should find herself forwardly placed, close to the pace.

#4 Miss Ella (Rosario / Motion) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two solid workouts. She might be traveling mid-pack, but close to the pace. As the group quickens into the stretch, she should hit her stride.

#3 Sunnysammi (Mejias / Esler) will be one of the speedsters looking for her third win in a row. She holds a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and two superb peaking workouts. With the inside post she could wire the field.
