Belmont Race 2 7 furlongs Claiming $20,000 (3:31 ET)
Best Value Play: #7 Cajun Wedding (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #5 Chase My Tail (2/1)
Other Contenders: #2 Red Constitution (4/1), #4 Jen’s Miracle (3/1)
Analysis: Chase My Tail comes back after a brief freshener for trainer Rodriguez and takes a moderate, but noticeable drop in class while keeping her regular pilot. Red Constitution is the other half of the uncoupled Rodriguez entry and she comes back after a rest and jumps in class after a win. What’s Rodriguez up to with this pair? Jen’s Miracle must be considered based upon capability-her best effort gives her a chance. Cajun Wedding seems to be improving and being lightly raced may pop out any moment with a big effort.
Belmont Race 7 6 1/2 furlongs Allowance 1X (6:06 ET)
Best Value Play: #8 Thnxtomyuncle (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #5 Say Mr. Sandman (7/2)
Other Contenders: #2 Sidearm (3/1) #3 Station Chief (5/2)
Analysis: Say Mr. Sandman gets the nod based upon a great record and courageous efforts around the New York circuit and his last at Finger Lakes is probably better than it appears. Sidearm will return for a second effort after a layoff with a good history and keeps Castellano. Station Chief is lightly raced but blessed with dangerous early speed, plus he had a very good breeze the other day. Thnxtomyuncle runs third time off the shelf and his last was an improvement. A few of his efforts last year suggest he can generate a winning speed figure.
