Belmont Park Race 2 - Post time: 1:31 ET

2-Prime Time Player (3-1)

Displayed promise in his debut at Fair Grounds in February when closing strongly to finish fourth but then disappointed when well-backed in his second outing while stretching out and failing to produce any type of rally.  Freshened, working well for new trainer R. Moquett, backing up in trip and switching to J. Rosario, the son of Ghostzapper gets a chance to show his best form, so in a moderate maiden special weight dash we’ll give him another chance in the win pool and in rolling exotic play at or near his morning line of 3-1.

Santa Anita Race 2 - Post: 1:34 PT

5-At the Spa (2-1)

Juvenile filly debuts in what appears to be a modest field and based on what she has shown in the morning seems very likely to outrun her competition.  A sharp half mile gate work (47 2/5 seconds, second fastest of 42) a couple of weeks ago points her out, and though the barn hasn’t won a race this year we’re expecting the daughter of Outwork to gain control early and keep on going.  Listed at 2-1 on the morning line, she’s a win play logical rolling exotic single.
