BELMONT – 5/30/22
RACE 5: 4-8-9-6
#4 RHEAUME was an eye-catching winner in her debut, slipping through the inside to run down #8 OUT OF SIGHT at odds of 7-1. She now gets Lasix for her second career start and should be set for improvement. The aforementioned Out of Sight is the main speed, but this filly gained a good position early last time out.
RACE 6: 7-4-5-2
#7 MAKE MISCHIEF was in a tough spot on the hard outside chase last time out in the Ruffian. She tired late after running near the likes of Grade I winner Search Results and Grade III winner Lady Rocket. She is at her best at this trip, and it yielded her best performance here last summer.
RACE 7: 5-3-2-1
There’s reason to believe that #5 CAPTAINSDAUGHTER will get some pace to run at late and the blinkers going on might wake her up early. She performed well enough as a juvenile to be considered a threat here in the late stages. The favorites here don’t inspire a great deal of confidence to boot.
RACE 8: 9-4-2-5
#9 WHO HOO THATS ME was a good 2nd last time out in a N1X at Aqueduct where he broke poorly then rallied into the pace. The 1-3 finishers in that race were battling from the outset and the setup was not there for an off the pace type. The pace in here should be contested, even with the scratches, and that sets the table for the closers.
RACE 9: 7-2-6-1
#7 SOMELIKEITHOTBROWN possesses a massive pace edge in this affair as he returns from a layoff. When last seen last fall here at Belmont he wired the Mohawk for the second straight year. The pace he set that day was glacial, and it certainly worked to his advantage. If he is left alone on the front end they’ll never get near him.
RACE 10: 12-5-4-11
While the race that #12 CROSSTALK comes out of is hardly the best you’ll find, she improved enough at second asking to be given extra consideration here. She has the speed to be involved from the start and should be a square price in a competitive field.
