03JUN09 Play Of The Day

Belmont Race 8

If the 4-1 morning line is anything close to the live odds on Solo Piano she is a play in Wednesday's 8th race at Belmont. She should be able to comfortably play her tune on the front end with very little pressure as every other filly or mare in the field is a deep closer. The vulnerable favorite Blitzen Too returns from surgery and a lengthy layoff. Last time Piano had to deal with other front running types like Fix You and Funny Moon, there are no such types in Wednesday's heat. Piano races second off the layoff and I am sure she wasn't all out to win last time as she conceded to the dominant 3-5 favorite. Solo Piano should have learned from the lesson last time and will be ready to roll tomorrow and dominate on the front end.

Solo Piano played her tune with little pressure and was allowed to relax through a facile 51 half mile. Late money poured in as an army of power cappers sent it in but you will see no easier winner than Solo Piano.

NEW YORK (AP)—Solo Piano, ridden by Ramon Dominguez, set a very slow pace and held off Forest Trail by 1 1/2 lengths Wednesday in the $46,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares on the turf at Belmont Park.

The 4-year-old trained by Bobby Frankel, ran the 1 1-16 miles in 1:43.87 on the firm course.

Solo Piano, now 2-for-7, paid $7.90, $3.80 and $3.20. Forest Trail returned $5.20 and $3.60. Bella Attrice paid $4.20.
