A Breath of Fresh Air in Belmont Feature

Today's Belmont feature is the Joseph A Gimma for state-bred 2yo fillies going 7 furlongs. While she isn't the fastest filly on anyone's speed scale, Newport Breeze (5-1) is a must selection for us.

I have never seen--repeat, never--see a youngster do what she did at Saratoga: stalking the pace down the backside, drop back on the turn to the point where it appeared she was going eased, only to re-rally from impossible circumstances to finish second.

She wasn't very far winning the whole day thing! Check out the replay!

Taking Newport Breeze to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the fast maiden breaker Girl's Dance Party (5-1), and the very professional Aunt Babe (4-1).
