Play It Again, Chad
There are two features at Belmont Park this afternoon. We'll take the more interesting of the two and hope the race stays on the turf. If not, we'll take Resonating (2-1) as a Main Track Only selection.
Meanwhile, the Given Stakes features another Chad Brown turf runner that holds the edge in a very competitive, tough field. Pianist (3-1) has never run a poor race and has acted like a budding stakes filly her whole career. This a a listed stakes but the future seems to start here. Never defeated in two starts at a mile, she has tactical speed from an inside post and a strong turn of foot which will come in handy in this loaded field.
Taking Pianist to win at 2-1 or greater and keying her first and second in multiples with Wholelottashakin (15-1), Medolina (5-1) and Alaura Michele (7-2).
