Play of the Day
Race Date June 05, 2021
Track Belmont Park
Race 5
Overview A compact renewal of the G1 Acorn with a heavy favorite in #6 Search Results (1-1), though a potentially vulnerable one too on the cutback to one-turn off a gut-wrenching 2nd in the Kentucky Oaks.
Pace It looks average to slow, which means #4 DAYOUTOFTHEOFFICE (4-1) can either clear early if they want to be aggressive, or stalk the potential cheap speed of #3 Miss Brazil (5-1) to her inside.
Trends Speed/press played well Thursday, though it was also a formful day filled with logical winners, and with an off-track Friday the slate gets wiped clean. Though, as a general rule of thumb, this is a main track that will play and to speed on Belmont Stakes Day.
Number 4
Morning Line (4-1)
Best Bet Overview #4 DAYOUTOFTHEOFFICE (4-1): Ran by far the best race in the G2 Eight Belles, chasing a wild pace in her first start since 11/6, cleared in midstretch but was run down by last-to-first #2 Obligatory (6-1). Today she figures to improve and gets a huge race flow edge too.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet, strong EX 1-6 with a smaller backup 6-1, and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and in the middle Pk4 as well.
