In need of Belmont Day dollars? Join the club, and that’s why we’re throwing deep in today’s featured eighth race at Belmont Park.

Gary Sciacca hardly even wins off lengthy layups, rarely wins, even in low double-digits, but has some specialties; meaning allowances and especially on turf. And he’s batting only 5% for 2012.

But he’s profitable in all these categories; he gets horses to outrun odds.

In Loyal Shadow (10-1), he has a winning accomplice. This filly DOES win fresh, she’s 4-for-11 on Belmont turf—1-for-23 doing anything else—has three exacta finishes including two wins at the distance and, most significantly, has earned her best Equiform figures under today’s conditions.

Tapping Corey Nakatani indicates that this veteran turf sprinting mare is live.

Taking Loyal Shadow to win at 9-1 or greater, and key boxing in exactas with course loving Paraiba (8-1) and the very quick Karakorum Electra (3-1) from the hot Rice shed.
