Belmont Picks 6/10/06

Hey all,
What a great day of racing we have here stakes galore, fast horses, slow horses, we've got it all. So lets see if we can make a little rent money.

True North- 6f on the dirt.
A whole bunch of class runners in this one, should be a speed fest.

4 Celtic Innis- With so much speed in this contest look for this entry coming late to get up. Should be a good price also...12-1 morning line.

5 Spanish Chestnut- SoCal G2 winner. Has a ton of ability. If he's right today, should be tough in this spot. Picks up super hot Leparoux for the ride.

1/1a Tiger ran a bang up race last out, and Voodoo is an old hand at these New York sprint races. Both classy contenders and a threat to run 1,2

7 Anew-Should be a decent price and fits well on numbers with this group. Assmussen is always a danger

Just A Game-1 mile on the grass fillies and mares
Couple scratches out of this one. Wend hurts the odds a little, but lets see if we can beat the expected favorite.

5 Mirabilis-Gomez and Frankel have a history of hooking up for big wins, see their back to back Pacific Classic wins with Skimming. Gomez has done well in NY stakes this year riding for pletcher and Frankel's track record is well known. Put this filly in the mix to beat the favorite.

2 Gorella- This lady has run well against the boys in some heavy competition. Should find her friends today a bit easier. Will be a shot price, but if you like her bet at the short odds anyway for a quick score to fund later endeavors

6 Pommes Frites- C. Velasquez and Mott a great in the NY area and are sure to have this filly on her toes. Looks to lead the field early. Possible Wire To Wire Threat.

Woody Stevens- 3yo's going 7f on the dirt

4 Fabulous Strike-Will be a good price (12-1 morning line). With the two favorites Songster and Too Much Bling throwing punches on the front end this entry should have good trip sitting right behind and if he's good enough can pounce at the top of the stretch.

9 Songster-Ran into an easy field last out going 7f on preakness day. Expect this entry to be sitting to outside of the 1 horses and looking for a weekness. Edgar Prado certainly doesn't hurt either.

1 Too Much Bling- This baffert entry has been on the should for 60 days and should be sharp and fresh. Ran a super race last out and may be Too Much Speed for this group.

Acorn stakes- 3yo fillies going one mile on the dirt

3 Bushfire-Tough customer here, won the ashland at keeneland and came back with a better then looked race in the oaks should like the one turn mile and has speed enough to stay close.

9 Ermine- Super race in the oaks, look for this filly coming on late to pick up the peices

1 Last Romance- This may have been the best filly that sat out the hustle and bustle of louisville. Prado should give her a good trip and Dutrow is always on his game.

Manhatten-3yo's and up 10f on the turf

5 Grey Swallow- on form this classy ex-irishmen should have this field over a barrel and it is the feeling of this player that Solis fits this colt like a glove.

8 English Channel- What can you say about this colt. He's been by far the most consisitent of any U.S. Turf runner over the last two years, ran well against high thought of Shakespere over this strip last year.

4 Cacique- This frankel runner has yet to win a Gr1 in the U.S. yet but he's been knocking on the door for a while now. Prado fits him well and look for him to get a good stalking trip.
