Speed Kills in Belmont Feature


Today's Belmont Park feature is not the most compelling we've ever seen, the Dancin Renee for state-bred filly sprinters going 6F has attracted a field of just five.

The reason for that is the presence of La Verdad (2-5). The only question is whether the speedy Clear Pasaj (8-1) can put enough early pressure on her to set the table for Willet (3-1), who seems to be preparing for a strong second-half campaign.

But the very fast Linda Rice trainee is a flat out win machine, her only loss since April of 2013 being a second place finish in the 7F open class Grade 2 Barbara Fritchie--but two starts back won the G2 Distaff over in Queens.

No choice but to go on record with La Verdad, no price restrictions, an exacta box with Willet, and adding last year's winner, Clear Pasaj (8-1), to the exotics mix.

Favorable Outlook for Corporate Culture


A tricky, trappy 6-horse feature at Belmont Park for older fillies and mares sprinting 6F on the inner turf course.

We'll play the percentages here and focus on the potential Chad Brown repeater, Corporate Culture (7-2). Her success at 7F and versatile style should suit this turnback, as does the promise of an honest pace.

All three lifetime wins have come on Belmont turf, she was a sharp winner of her last, returns with excellent spacing and a very solid, purposeful workline. Jose Lezcano takes the re-ride.

Taking Corporate Culture to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with the speedy To My Valentine (2-1).

The Lady Has Style


Today's Belmont Park feature is the Grade 3 Victory Ride for 3YO fillies going the hybrid distance of 6-1/2 furlongs--and there's no shortage of speed signed on.

The speed of that speed looks like Red Velvet (3-1), coming off a New Pace Top earned without being unduly punished to do it. Her outside draw doesn't hurt either.

But Milam (5-2) has two things going for her in this match; the right style for the speed dynamics here, her ability at this distance, the spacing is perfect and she's been training very well at her CD base.

Taking Milam to win at 2-1 or greater, an exacta box with 'Velvet', and adding Miss Behavior (7-2) to the exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1557

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 475-299-240

Amount Wagered: $3,114 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,215.60

Profit to Date: $101.60
