Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Belmont   Race 4,   6 furlongs   Claiming $12,500  (2:53 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Oltre’ Oro (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Love to Run (4/1)
Other Contenders: #7 Star of New York (6/1), #8 Attractive Ride (3/1)

Analysis: Love to Run will shoot for his tenth career win and with his close up stalking style should get a good run at the early speed. Star of New York is an old pro with an amazing resume, not the least of which is eleven career wins. He should be coming late. Attractive Ride tops them all when it comes to accomplishments. This nine year old has won twenty one times and has the speed to wire the field. Oltre Oro is trained by one of the best in Gotham and has plenty of back class to beat these. Third time after a rest is probably a positive sign.

Belmont Race 9,   6 1/2 furlongs   Optional Claiming $40,000  (5:28 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Scat Away (15/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 Here’s Zealicious (5/1)
Other Contenders: #1 Bileaps and Bounds (6/1) #4 Hot Rendezvous (7/2)

Analysis: Here’s Zealicious may be underbet, is dropping from stakes competition and has a dozen career wins to her credit. Bileaps and Bounds could be the sleeper and could get away with her early speed. She has cleared a lot of conditions in the past. Hot Rendevous is another with lots of class and should be doing battle late in the game. Scat Away is trained by one of the best and showed one good effort in open company. The nicely bred New Yorker is lightly raced compared to these but she looks capable of an upset.
