Play of the Day
Race Date June 10, 2021
Track Belmont Park
Race 8
Overview A solid AOC for older horses, though one with two inside favorites that could potentially be at a pace disadvantage.
Pace There’s not much here, which could flatter #5 JALEN JOURNEY (3-1), who should be the controlling speed, and conversely hurt #1 Mihos (5-2) and #2 Town Classic (2-1), who don’t have much of it.
Trends Speed (predictably) played well last weekend, and while this is the start of a new racing week, being in front or up close is never a bad thing, regardless.
Number 5
Morning Line (3-1)
Best Bet Overview #5 JALEN JOURNEY (3-1): Potential Lone F has been in some tough spots and had a ton of trouble last time, and should be the controlling speed with an alert beginning.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
