Belmont Race 7, 6 1/2 furlongs Claiming $25,000 (4:26 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Seek to Destroy (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #6 Leilani’s Ticket (5/2)
Other Contenders: #7 Jeter (4/1) #8 Smooth Bert (7/2)
Analysis: Leilani’s Ticket returns after a break. He won at this level before he took a vacation and comes back looking ready to go. Jeter is an old pro around New York and usually gives a good account of himself, and it looks like he should run well today. Smooth Bert is something of a mystery. He has been laid off since the last Saratoga meet and returns with a big drop in class. He may not be as good as he once was but it is hard to ignore his back class. Seek to Destroy goes for his eleventh career win but the interesting point about this guy is that he was just claimed by a top notch trainer who took him from the best claiming trainer in the nation. Could it be that one knows the other had him ready?
