Play of the Day
Race Date May 16, 2021
Track Belmont Park
Race 8
Overview A deep and competitive NYB AOC turf sprint with plenty of value that looks like the best betting race on the card.
Pace It should be honest but it doesn’t look overly heated, especially for a turf sprint.
Trends It’s still early in the meet but both surfaces have been on the fair side, and while speed/tactical speed has been preferred, there have been several deep closers who have gotten the job done as well.
Number 6
Morning Line (9-2)
Best Bet Overview #6 SHIRAZ (9-2) (turf only): Versatile sort was in too tough in an open N1X last time but returns with state breds, should be close throughout, and Maker is a strong 18% off this type of extended layoff as well.
Picks & Plays WPS bet and a must-use in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
