Belmont Stakes Play Of The Day

Belmont Stakes Race 11

Charitable man is a clear stand out here in the Belmont Stakes. He has a pace, form and horse for the course edge. He has the set up to make a generous run He should be right on the pace and kick away from the outclassed Zito longshot. By the time the others start their moves Charitable Man will be out of reach. He will be my single in all multi wagers.

Win #6 Charitable Man

Two long shots that have a big chance are Hello Broadway in the Woody Stephens and Funny Moon in the Acorn. Both horses have a shot to light up the tote and should be used on all pick 3s and pick 4s. Hello Broadway ran off like a crazy horse last out with the blinkers-on. It was an impressive display of speed combined with a total lack of control. If Tagg has found a way to harness that speed we could be looking at a huge turn around in the Woody Stephens. Funny Moon looked tremendous last out and is working great for the sharp Clemente barn. She is a horse for course and a distance master.

Let me get mine out of the way first--Man was I wrong. If there was a place to book it, I would have bet that Summer Bird would run dead last...was just so sure that he was the sucker horse, that the Arky Derby was a negative key race. The signs were there; quite a few sharps were touting him. But I was convinced he was this race's wise guy tank-job.

Meanwhile, my two horses ran next to last, and next to next to last...DOH!

Yeah Cholly I guess I had the wise-guy colt right in my cross heirs. I was so excited when the board read 5-1 on Charitable Man, I got a touch of greed fever. Before the race 9-2 was a great price on the Man with all the money pouring in on the more well known Bird. Then on the turn it looked so good but the Man horse came up empty.

The win was not to be. The unexpected event of Dunkirk setting a hot pace took a it of starch out of the Man. I think that was a reaction to the noticeable speed bias affecting the results all day. Mine That Bird moved too early as well. Everyone moved too early except for the winner. Losing is not fun and neither is being wrong but if you play this game it is going to happen. Congrats to the connections of Summer Bird, he ran great and had a nice ride.
