Belmont May 20

Race 1      3-2-1

Thundering Gale has two wins in three tries at BEL. Chad Brown is great off the layoff and with turf fillies. Little Ariel showed good turf ability last time she was on the grass and gets a top jock in Franco. One Penny Piece ran well at GP and does have a second on the BEL turf.

Race 2      1-3-5

Ghost Swagger has the best last out figure and is bred very well for the distance. Summit Moon was over his head last out but has been competitive at this level. Thomas Knight has four seconds in six starts and looks to break through today.

Race 3      4-5-3

Iknewuweretrouble was claimed last out by Nevin who is 28% first off. Consistent figures lately. White Legend is another who was claimed last out and has been with far better recently. A winner off his best. Bella Fachi does not seem to be a real win type but if she has a favorite track it looks like BEL.

Race 4       1-4-3

The entry of Double the Energy and Lady’s Lunar Luck looks tough here. Double the Energy may be the better of the two. Ave’s Halo drops way down and off his best number is competitive. First Whippoorwill should be one of the pacesetters and may steal this one.

Race 5      6-5-3

Lotsa Noodles is dropping down for this start and has the best last race figure. Ginney’s Grey was taken last out by Danny Gargan who has been unreal with starters this year. Has previous figures that show some talent. Bounty Pink has been with better and is 3 for 3 at BEL.

Race 6      6-4-1

Ack Feisty ran very well first time out for Chad Brown and doesn’t have to improve much to beat this field. Memories of Peter got better when stretched out and has the best last race figure. Apollo Eleven ran his best race when switched to the turf and is competitive in this group.

Race 7      2-4-3

Best Man was taken last out by RuRod and is bumped up a notch in class. Has a win at the distance. In Speight Ofitall has had trouble reaching the winner’s circle, but looks capable in this group. Erik the Red drops down a bit for Linda Rice. Was beating much better in the not too distant past.

Race 8      9-6-1

Barrel of Love has been consistent lately and has figures that dominate this field. Analysis comes off the long layoff for George Weaver who is better than average off the vacation. Figures say he should be in the mix behind the 9. Mark My Way picks an easy spot to make his return. Enjoys the BEL turf.

Race 9      8-2-10

Isthatallthereis jumped up on the turf and is attractive at the ML odds. Fredaq ran well enough to win last out and should improve today. Courageisamajority just missed last out and looks very competitive in here.
