Play It Loud, I’m Fast and I’m Proud

Today's Belmont feature is a NXI allowances for 3YO and up going a mile on turf and it's a pretty open scramble featuring several with upside potential. We will err on the side of a potential horses for course.

When Play It Loud (5-1) was just a baby, he earned his best energy figure on this course and at today's distance. Subsequently he was shipped to SoCal for a failed campaign, returned East and moved into the barn of Graham Motion.

After taking an overland route, he finished very gamely for third, missing all of it by just a head. Now, considering he's making his second start for this barn, a profitable 22% scenario, he is nicely drawn, fits the dynamic nicely and Johnny V. is taking a return call.

We're taking Play It Loud to win at 4-1 or greater and key boxing exactas with the very sharp McIllroy (9-2) and the promising Stableford (4-1), making his second U.S start and picking up Victor Espinoza.
