Belmont Poker Stakes

What parallel universe does the ML maker live in to make Force the Pass 5-1 and a shorter price than Made You Look? Am I way wrong on this?

FtP only out of money in one lifetime race, runs consistently good figs. MYL had a great race against OC 80k company last out, were it not for the Chad Brown factor I would be calling for a bounce performance this time out. ML doesn't mean much to me, because come post time the Chad Brown horse is gonna be bet down to 2-1 while FtP will likely be 8-1 and an overlay.

I'm looking more at Ballagh Rocks and especially Voodoo Song third off the layoff for Linda Rice. My 2 cents.

It doesn’t mean anything to me either. I just couldn’t believe someone could possibly see FTP as a shorter price than the Chad Brown entrant. I posted here to hear if I was missing something.

Sometimes it's so easy in retrospect. A three time Gr1 winner was facing a bunch of Gr3 types.
Good night.
I bet the 8 😂

I thought it was possible Oscar Performance could need one off the layoff. I guess he didn't.

Wasn't this the second course record at Belmont within the past week?

I just looked through my play sheets for a note on the first one but didn't see it...but when I'm done for the day my play sheet look like a pack rat nest! But I swear remembering hearing that said following a recent race at Bel in addition to the one today.

Today's 3rd race Optional claiming 80K, 6yo trained by R Diodoro. According to
Andy Serling
‏ @andyserling

"If that time is accurate, which I am skeptical of, it's a new track record, 1:06.74, on the Inner Turf at #Belmont. Tombelaine gets it done off the claim. The suggested fractions say they went 21.84, 21.88, and 23.02."

Well if we do the raw times game, a popular thing around here, we are looking at two of the great turf horses of all time.
