Belmont Race 5

An allowance optional claiming race to be run at one mile on the main turf course. Looks like a speed duel could develop from the outset between the two inside horses. Let’s make No. 11 Aquaphobia the top selection. He had some traffic trouble in his last at Saratoga, and ran on a softer course before that at The Spa. If he can find the form from earlier this year, he should be having the saddle removed after his picture. No. 7 Hay Dakota is quickly on the improve for “stat-monger” trainer, Jason Servis. No. 4 C C Rider (can’t get the King’s song out of my head) shows up after a huge effort in Virgina. Trainer Michael Matz usually picks good spots for his horses.
