Play of the Day
Race Date June 24, 2021
Track Belmont Park
Race 5
Overview A very deep and competitive NYB N1X with several that look the same on paper, but on that could own a decisive pace edge.
Pace It looks very slow, so expect #5 THE LAST ACE (8-1) to be sent off her sprint return, especially since Jose Ortiz loves to be aggressive early and take control of a race.
Trends The turf has been relatively formful throughout the meet, though with hot, dry weather over the past few weeks, closers figure to be at a disadvantage.
Number 1
Morning Line (8-1)
Best Bet Overview #1 THE LAST ACE (8-1) (turf only): Not only does she look like a Lone F, but she also returned from a long layoff and made her turf debut, and really improved with the surface switch, so another move forward is entirely possible.
Picks & Plays WPS bet, strong EX over 3 and 7 with smaller backups underneath, and a must-use to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and kick off the late Pk5 as well.
