Belmont Pick 6 Carryover-Basement Apt Play

Nothing like turning a few bucks and an opinion into a house down payment. We will try to do that with the Belmont pick 6 carryover. With horse racing online you can create your house down payment and finally kiss your landlord and his basement apartment goodbye.

The big question going into the card is the surface. With all of the rain the last week(three posts last week with monsoon in the title)I am going to gamble(that's a surprise) that we are off the turf and a fast main track.

Pick 6 ticket 1,5,6 / 9,13 / 7,9,10,11 / 5,7 / 10 / 12 =$96 play

Race 4 - Bottom level open maiden claimer lacks speed. Going to lean on lightly raced three year olds in here. My two picks are Saint Midas and the first timer Scholarly Pursuit. Karakorum may be a user from the rail as the lone speed may just help her pull off the upset.

Race 5 - Assuming off the turf, there are two users in here. No Rhyme or Reason is off the layoff and broke the maiden against 40K open. A bit reluctantly I will cover the undefeated Quonata who won first out last out.

Race 6 - A tricky race and one that could change dramatically with scratches. I am considering 4 horses and they are 7,9,10,11.

Race 7 - Smoking Sarah won last out in a battle. A tough race that will affect her form, the favorite will come up empty here. The two users are Crazy Thing on the cutback and Stephen's Rhythm's who closed well last time and should run better on a fast track.

Race 8 - Assuming off the turf Silvercup Baby looks tough in here. This could be our first single in the sequence. She has found a nice rating gear this year and should love the distance of 7 furlongs. I may use Summer Palace two who is second off layoff/first off the claim and has a great record at Big Sandy.

Race 9 - Assuming off the turf once again. This looks like Super Child's race to lose. She figures to be the front end boss and the drop should get the Empire Maker filly home and the powercap faithful out of their basement apartments.
