Blazing the Way
Today's Belmont Park feature, the Good Reward overnight stakes for older turf runners going 10 furlongs, marks the U.S. debut of South American 5YO import Quick Casablanca (9-2) for the team of Clement/Rosario. He's a G1 performer on turf and dirt, is training steadily and willingly, and has run very well at this trip.
However, we'll play percenatges and shade a Horse for Course that has also done well at this distance; Barcley Tagg's Sky Blazer (5-2). He owns enough tactical speed to stay within hailing distance of Teks North and inside position insures a ground saving trip that will be sure to help in the late stages.
Taking Sky Blazer to win at 5-2 or greater and key boxing exactas with Clement's import and the McGaughey-trained Reflecting. Exotic players can add Chad Brown's Hyper (6-1) to their mix.
