Who Doesn’t Love a Princess?
Today's Belmont featured 5th race is a secondary allowances/optional claimer that promises fast fractions and good finishers. We're going to cut this baby in half?
d'Princess (9-5) was claimed by David Jacobson--profitable 29% first time off claim--out of a sharp score on closing weekend in Saratoga, her 4th win in 10 starts at the distance now returns to Belmont where she's posted a worthy (2) 1-1-0 slate at this trip.
But what separates her from her rivals is that she can run strong internal fractions and blow this field of six wide open.
Taking d'Princess to win, no price restrictions, and boxing her in the exacta with Arlene's Holiday (7-2), turning back and going turf to dirt for Breen, who's 24% effective second time off the layup, the case here.
