Date:  7/7/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Belmont Park – Race 7 
Race overview:  A solid MSW going 1 ¼ miles on the turf for 3up, with several who appear to have talent. 
Pace:  There’s no burners here, and going this long, you should things to be tepid early, with a late sprint looming. 
Trends:  The turf course has been fast and firm for the majority of the meet, which has yielded quick splits while showing a penchant for carrying speed a bit farther than you might expect. 
Best Play:  #2 HEADLINE NEWS (3-1): Pimlico invader was bet a bit on debut for Toner, who has done no wrong all year, and was a good 4th, with trouble to boot, and you have to think this was the big spot and stage they had in mind all along. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the carryover Pk6, late Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk4 as well.
