BELMONT PARK

POST-SCRATCHES

7th: 2nd Turf Sprint Invt., 3+, 6f-IT (NYRA Bets P5, G/S, P3, DD)

Most Likely: #1 Disco Partner 2-1 WON ($4.20)
Best Value: #7 Pocket Change 6-1 6th
Next Best: #5 Pure Sensation 5-2 3rd
Exotics Use: #2 Blind Ambition 9-2 2nd

8th: 78th Beldame (G1), F&M-3+, 9f (P4, P3, DD)

Don’t take anything for granted here. On paper, entire field is separated by 2 lengths on their best. Will come down to how hot the pace is with Divine Miss Grey & Come Dancing certain to go early and Farrell likely to get back to comfort zone on/near..

Best Value: #7 Berned 8-1 6th
Next Best: #6 Wow Cat 5-2 WON ($4.60)
Exotics Use: #5 Verve’s Tale 9-2 3rd
Super Add: #2 Teresa Z 10-1 4th

9th: 43rd Hill Prince (G3), 3yo, 9f-IT (P3, DD)

Raging Bull obviously the horse to beat, but there is no authentic speed here and an aggressive approach by an ambitious jock could impact the dynamics..

Most Likely: #3 Raging Bull 6-5 5th
Best Value: #2 Prioritize 15-1 3rd
Next Best: #1 Have At It 8-1 WON ($24.20)
Exotics Use: #4 Cullum Road 10-1 7th

10th: 146th Champagne (G1), 2yo, 1m (DD)

Terrific cast of 10 for this historic event and lineup is peppered with Florida (Trophy Chaser), California (Listing) and Jersey (Successful Zip) invaders. Klarman/Brown fave Complexity the one to (potentially) catch and beat and note that Pletcher’s Brunetti homebred King for a Day, (3rd against him in their upstate debuts), graduated Thursday with a 93 Beyer. Regarding company lines, Call Paul beat G1 Hopeful upsetter (and KEE Breeders’ Futurity contender) Mind Control (Brunetti again!) in their debuts. He then bested Tight Ten in the SAR Special and that one was 2nd only to Cairo Cat in the Iroquois last month. Endorsed wasn’t supposed to win his career bow, but did and may be the ideal candidate for an inside/out rally. Trophy Chaser was stunning in his MDN-breaker in So. FL and doesn’t need the lead. This is a really fun edition of the Champagne and expect many, many of these go on to do good things..
