Race 8:  A starter allowance on the turf at a distance of 8.5 furlongs. Top choice is attractively priced No. 4 Augusta Moon. We’ve loved his last two races, especially the most recent one at Saratoga. He’s a horse on the improve and is now with trainer Mike Maker. No. 5 Connectivity returns to a race after only 13 days for new trainer Steve Asmussen. The horse’s sheet figures put him in the mix and the trainer’s stats (on short rest) do the same. Likely favorite No. 9 Keota, loves Belmont Park. So if one puts heavy stock in “horses for courses,” then he’s the one.  

My Pick:  Win/Place 4  Exacta Box 4-5-9  Trifecta Box 4-5-6-9
