Sky’s the Limit


It appears that several members of today's feature race field at Belmont may be looking for bigger and better game in the future, even prepping Highland Sky (8-5) holds the best cards.

Pace compromised in last after overcoming a very tough trip to win his Gulfstream prior, this a a turf runner with a future and Barclay Tagg is reaching out for Javier Castellano, befitting the occasion.

Taking Highland Sky to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Gold Shield (6-1), a sharp worker shipping in for Shug, the longer of his uncoupled stable entry.

Excluded Needs Inclusion in Belmont-Feature Plays


Interesting turf sprint feature at Belmont looks like a two-horse race on paper, both with expertise at the distance and on the Belmont lawn.

We're leaning toward Excluded (3-1) who showed he benefitted from added maturity as the first time 4YO, owns a series of figures that are very competitive with this group, has good spacing from that APR 30 effort and reunites with Jose Ortiz, whose 1-for-1 on the Toscano-trained gelding.

Taking Excluded to win at 5-2 or greater, and exacta box with main rival, the returning Summer Breezing (7-2), adding Grand Sky to the trifecta mix.

Two Big Ones from Big Sandy


The headline references the two biggest races of Belmont spring-summer, the Met Mile and the Belmont Stakes.

He may face pace pressure but we think he will handle it. Taking the ultra fast and game Sharp Azteca (7-2) to win the Met at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Mor Spirit (5-2) and Tom's Ready (15-1).

In the Test of the Champion, we're betting Tapwrit (6-1) to win at ML odds or greater and an exacta box with Irish War Cry (7-2), adding Gormley (8-1), J Boys Echo (15-1) and Lookin At Lee (5-1) to the super-exotics mix.
