BELMONT PARK

RACE 11

THE BELMONT STAKES

No. 5 American Pharoah takes his shot at stardom if he can win this race and the way he has been training this is his race to win or lose. Todd Pletcher sends out two runners No. 8 Materiality and No. 3 Madefromlucky the winner of the Peter Pan stakes here and last year’s winner exited the Peter Pan. Pletcher may know that his only shot is for Materiality to take on American Pharoah early and not let him get an easy lead. That strategy may not work and if he does take him on early that could set up No. 6 Frosted the big gray or the sneaky looking No. 1 Mubtaahij. Mubtaahij gets the leading jockey here at Big Sandy Irad Ortiz Jr and that is a huge plus. 5 with 1-3-6-8 will be the main bet in a trifecta and super and we will use the five second on one ticket just in case.
