Babies R Us
Today's feature at Belmont is a state-bred stakes for 2YO fillies, the Lynbook. Half the 6-horse field is comprised of first time starters and our stats say that this will come down to one of two firsters.
Wonder Gal is the early line favorite despite her inexperience, but the workline is there and Leah Gyarmati, who is becoming a serious player on the circuit, is a profitable 24% with her babies. But the thinking is that her outside post works against the newcomer in this spot.
Jessica's Ride (3-1), meanwhile is working brilliantly at her Fair Hill base, is also bred to win early, like the favorite, and in James Lawrence has a teacher that's profitable in a;l relevant categories.
Taking Jessica's Ride to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing with the favorite and price shot Accelerbrate (15-1), who came from well off the pace to miss by a nose in her debut at goes first-Lasix today.
