This Lady Runs Late

There certainly seems to be enough speed in today’s Belmont feature, a secondary allowances for state-bred fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up, sprinting 6 furlongs.

And that’s as good news for Lady On The Run (4-1), who’s a deep closer from the Prodana Naviesta school of late running sprinters.

(I know Hedley Woodhouse used to ride her; can’t remember the trainer, and she ran so long ago that Equibase doesn’t even have her in their database).

Anyway, with fillies such as Saltamontes, Turned to Gold setting the table and possibly Page By Page and Myrtle’s Gray applying pressure, the pace will be at least honest, at best, hot.

Taking Lady On The Run to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing her in exotics pools with Page By Page (3-1), Bailzee (6-1) and Turned To Gold (10-1).

Monument Hill Live in the Belmont Feature

Today’s Belmont Park feature is a secondary allowance optional claiming is an open 1-1/16th miles on the turf and the trip is the key to value with the George Weaver trainee Monument Hill (8-1).

Coming off a turf decline line, the distance specialist owns tactical speed, kick, and goes very well for Eddie Castro.

Briefly freshened since July 30, he makes his surface debut off a series of purposeful recent works on the Oklahoma turf course.

Taking Monument Hill to win at 5-1 or greater and key boxing him in the exacta with Unaccountable (9-2) and Gathering Cloud (7-2).

Mott’s Filly Will Soar

The difference between the favorites in Sunday's Grade 3 Noble Damsel, Aviate (8-5) and Unbridled Humor (9-5), is that the former earns her best figures at today's one-mile trip, even though her rival is a perfect 2-for-2 at the route. Today's Euro import doesn't appear to have the same credentials as yesterday's Garden City runnerup. The home team repeats.

Taking Aviate to win, no price restrictions.
