Belmont Park Race #4 – The G3 Peter Pan – 1 1/8 – 3:08 pm EDT

BetPTC.com Selections / #5 – Final Jeopardy / #1 – Intrepid Heart / #3 Global Campaign

#5 Final Jeopardy is a son of Street Sense for trainer Jason Servis. Irad Ortiz has the call and this is his third off the layoff exiting the G2 Wood Memorial. He was compromised and squeezed back at the start. He’s a solid stalker for Gary and Mary West and maybe this weekend will be a little kinder. #1 Intrepid Heart hails from the barn of Todd Pletcher with John Velasquez aboard. They are winning 28% as a team and this son of Tapit is 2/2. He’s a versatile runner seeking his third straight win moving up the ladder. #3 Global Campaign goes to post for trainer Stanley Hough with Luis saez in the saddle. He’s been on the shelf for 2 months exiting the G2 FOY at GP. His style is solid speed as this son of Curlin has been working over the deep CD course looking to fire with fresh legs.

Joel Rosario in the driver’s seat as she comes off a string victory in the G1 American Oaks at SA. She is a strong closer and Brown is scoring at a 39% clip this meet.

BetPTC.com Selections / #5 – Magic Wand / #2 – Zulu Alpha / #6 – Focus Group

#5 Magic Wand is a daughter of Galileo for trainer Aidan O’Brien. Wayne Lordan gets the call and she gets 2nd time Lasix where the trainer wins 27%. Her last race was the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic back in March and ran a game second against the boys in the G1 Pegasus World Cup Turf. Lordan has a pair of seconds to his credit in the saddle looking to to seal the deal. #2 Zulu Alpha is a son of Street Cry for trainer Mike Maker. Javier Castellano aboard and makes a 2nd off the layoff move exiting the G2 Elkhorn at Keeneland. He is 14/20 ITM on the green and was a beaten favorite last out looking for payback. #6 Focus Group is a son of Kitten’s Joy for Chad Brown. Irad Ortiz in the irons making his second start of the year. He won with a strong closing effort in the G2 Pan American looking to make 2019 his year.

Race #12 – The G2 Davona Dale – 1 mile – 5:01 pm EDT

BetPTC.com Selections / #1 – Jaywalk / #3 – Another Time / #5 – Champagne Anyone

#1 Jaywalk has been away from the races for four months since the BC Juvenile Fillies. She is looking to strike at first asking and that would make her five in a row right off the bench. Joel Rosario travels in from California and he has been aboard her last two impressive outings. She cuts back in distance off her victory in the BC and she has plenty of solid works at Palm Meadows. She draws the rail and that spot has been winning at 21%. #3 Another Time ships in from Woodbine two back and picks up the services of Irad Ortiz. She ran a very game third effort at TBD even though it was a troubled trip. I think it takes a couple races to get acclimated back to the dirt and she happens to have a red hot reinsman calling the shots. Look for a strong closing punch. #5 Champagne Anyone is a daughter of Street Sense looking to ship in from CD out of the G3 Forward Gal. She has a good late kick and hails from the Ian Wilkes barn. Chris Landeros makes the trip and she will come rolling late in the lane.

Race #13 – The G2 Fountain of Youth – 1 1/16 – 5:32 pm EDT

BetPTC.com Selections / #6 – Signalman / #8 – Global Campaign / #7 – Hidden Scroll

#6 Signalman comes from the barn of Ken McPeek with B.J. Hernandez in the driver’s seat. He is 5 for 5 ITM lifetime and won the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club at CD. He looked promising at two and his three year old season looks promising. He has a strong late punch and his works at GP have shown promise. #8 Global Campaign is a perfect two for two and hails from the Stanley Hough barn. He is a perfect stalking sort and his races have really shown a sign of good things to come. His works at Palm Meadows have been sparkling and I’m looking for a big effort. #7 Hidden Scroll is a lightly raced colt who is an impressive one for one. This son of Hard Spun drew off to win by 14 and Joel Rosario is aboard for a good reason. Trainer Bill Mott has been on a roll winning at a super 20% so far this meet as his runner looks to duplicate his last explosive win.

Race #14 – The G2 Mac Diarmida – 1 3/6 on the turf – 6:06 pm EDT

BetPTC.com Selections / #11 – Channel Maker / #9 – Kulin Rock / #5 – Vettori Kin

#11 Channel Maker hails from the impressive Bill Mott barn. He is making his 2nd start off the layoff and has the services of Joel Rosario. He can be a versatile stalker, and drawing the outside post may allow him time to get into position. #9 Kulin Rock has Jose Ortiz aboard for trainer Mike Maker. This son of Lonhro is 3 for 5 ITM over the GP green and Ortiz picks up the mount after a $50k starter claiming race loss. He should make a good late run and Ortiz moves him right into the game. #5 Vettori Kin ships in from Woodbine facing some very tough company. He is 5 for 11 ITM on the sod and trainer Ken McPeek can bring them ready in a hurry. B.J. Hernandez in the saddle and a big effort would not surprise at all. He is the deep closing sort and look for his silks at the top of the lane.
