Belmont Park Race 4 - Post time: 2:33 ET
5-Big Everest (4-1)
Displayed plenty of ability in his only prior outing last October when an excellent runner-up to subsequent stakes winner Hard Love over the Belmont Park turf course while more than three lengths clear of the rest. The 3-year-old English-bred colt shows a steady, healthy work pattern for his comeback, gets Lasix, and goes for a stable that has very strong stats with layoff runners. J. Rosario should have this sophomore colt within range throughout, so at 4-1 on the morning line let’s make him a win play and rolling exotic single.
Churchill Downs Race 11 - Post time: 11:10 ET
4-Smith’s Point (5/2)
Was off slowly, raced greenly and fell back during the early stages of her debut over six furlongs on Kentucky Oaks Day but took hold on the turn and produced a serious late run to finish a highly promising and rapidly closing third. With that bit of experience behind her and with today’s extra quarter of a mile to work with, the daughter of Bernardini should step forward in a big way for a barn that has outstanding stats with second-time starters. The C. Brown-trained filly offers excellent wagering value at or near her morning line of 5/2 both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
