If he tried, which obviously he has, Bruce Levine could not have found a more ideal spot for A Little Faith (6-1) to get back on the good foot.
First, she returns to maiden-breaking distance and course on debut last summer. ‘Faith’ then was an excellent second on the Spa two-turn stretch-out, a quickly run Saratoga route.
Put a line through her last, such was the nature of the trip. She now returns to friendlier Belmont Park confines with good spacing, dynamics, an outside draw and Johnny draws the assignment.
A Little Faith has Lead Guitar (1-1) to beat stretching out after maiden win at 5-1/2 furlongs in Saratoga, winning by a short pole in fast time. George Weaver has given her five week of recovery time.
Taking a Little Faith to win at 4-1 or great and an exacta box with the early line favorite.
