Superfecta Sunday on Soft Turf

Congratulations to our Chicago Cubs on making it to the World Series.  The last time they were seen on Major League Baseball's grandest stage, Harry S. Truman was President of the United States. 

A beautiful day across the country as we look towards New York for some Superfecta Turf play.

Belmont Park Race 8 {Athenia~G3~1 1/16 mile~inner TURF~3 year-old Up~Fillies/Mares~Graded Stakes}

A stellar field of ten gals will hit the Turf in this graded stakes race. There seems to be enough pace to insure an honest pace. Speed numbers are extremely close making for a super competitive race. Our task is to cobble together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta Box ticket. It should be a great day of Autumn racing.

#7 Mexican Gold (I. Ortiz / C. Brown) might have the edge with the fourth highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and four superb workouts. This gal appears to enjoy running over soft or good Turf. She should take up a tracking position and streak through the stretch. This lass has already won at this distance in her only try. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$4 SHOW.

#1 Strike Charmer (Alvarado / Hennig) is coming out of a grade one that had stiffer competition. She holds the highest last out speed number at a longer Turf route and one serious workout. This gal could go off as the deserved favorite. She should track and close successfully.

#9 All In Fun (J. Ortiz / McGaughey) should challenge with the second highest (tie) last out speed number at a longer Turf route, a four race progression, and three excellent workouts. She could track closer to the pace and unleash her kick in the stretch. This gal loves the distance and should handle the soft/good going.

#4 Sea Coast [IRE] (J. Velazquez / Clement) is 100% in the money at this distance from four starts. She shares the second highest last out speed number, is working a two race progression, and has put in four hearty workouts. She could be forwardly placed ready to pounce going into the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#7 Mexican Gold  +  #1 Strike Charmer  +  #9 All In Fun  +  #4 Sea Coast [IRE].
