It appears that in today's Belmont feature for fillies and mares sprinting 7F on the turf that Linda Rice's hot roll will continue.

Clearly, Ballerina Belle (5-1) has all the tools. Fastest on performance figures, she ended her 3YO year with a strong mid-race move to win at 6F in very fast time.

On May 11, she started her season where she left off, a strong finish second after dropping far back early in her Widener debut, earning a figure that indicates she has made the transition from 3 to 4 in good order.

Given sufficient recovery time, Jose Ortiz can push whatever button he chooses from the filly's inside draw.

Taking Ballerina Belle to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing her in exactas with turnback Roses for Romney (4-1) and course/distance lover Lawless Miss (8-1). Also adding AE Weave (15-1) to the super-exotics mix if she draws in.
