Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Saturday (5-8)

Belmont Park Race 9 - Post time: 5:12 ET

3-Promise Keeper (7/2)

Lightly-raced and rapidly developing 3-year-old colt demolished a first-level allowance field at Keeneland last month by more than five lengths while earning a career top speed figure in a performance that stamps him as the one to beat in this year’s renewal of the Peter Pan S.-G3. The T. Pletcher-trained son of Constitution should love this nine furlong distance, retains regular jockey L. Saez, and projects to settle in the second flight and then blast home. He’s a play in the win pool and as a rolling exotic single.

Santa Anita Race 5 - Post: 3:15 PT

2-Pythagorean (5/2)

Daughter of Medaglia d’Oro makes her West Coast debut for new trainer P. D’Amato (terrific stats with this angle) and has trained like she’s fit and ready in her first start since breaking her maiden at Aqueduct with a career-top speed figure last November. We are expecting an even better performance today, even though she might be better suited for a longer trip. At her morning line of 5/2, she offers value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
