Record Pick Six Carryover At Belmont $1,186,625.88

A cold front blew through New York tonight so Wednesday at Belmont will be cooler with reduced humidity. However the track has been baked hard for 4 days under oppressive heat so I am counting on the Saturday speed bias to hold. There is over a million in the pick 6 pool, enough to free me from work so I can work on this blog more. The sequence is loaded with huge fields and challenging races, this is the kind of sequence that is going to take both luck and skill to take down. On a limited budget I will try to take this thing down.

Race 4- This race includes one of my singles. #2 My Dinah goes turf to dirt after rabbit duties in the Mt Vernon setting up the winner. She should love the return to dirt and drop in class.

Race 5- This race is lacking in pace but there really is nobody in the main body of the race that could take advantage of that. All In No Outs has pressed a dirt pace before and with an inside post it makes sense to take a prominent position in the running here, but I do not think this one wants the lead, but he must be used. Kick Up Your Heels is a winner at the Distance and is 3rd off layoff. Hot Table ran well last out in the common race and is the likely favorite. Dutrow sends out Youbethecan off the layoff and he is dangerous in that situation. Nikkinikkinikki was the only turf horse in the 24apr race and ran bad he is a toss. If he draws in Star For Tina should be used. Flash Of Victory would have been a single if he raced but he will be scratched.

Race 6- Dancing Tin Man has proven himself to be better than these as has beaten open older claimers not once but twice. He is a single here.

Race 7- There is a ton of speed in here but that does not mean that speed can not win. Just In Line and Citi fiesta broke their maidens on the same day, however the Justinline race was much tougher. Going to play this thing as a spread race as many will do. using 3,4,7,9

Race 8- This turf sprint is light on speed. Forest of dreams is a Jerkens special with the "go" blowout on Monday morning. Should be able to wire this bunch. A single in a race othesr may go deep in.

Race 9- Not much speed in this race and it looks ripe for a steal. Too many layoff lines to trust Ten Forty as a single. Using all those that broke the maiden for 30K open or better. 1,7,9,10

Preliminary ticket before scratches is 2 / 2,6,13 / 8 / 3,4,7,9 / 9 / 1,7,9,10 $96 play
