Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday.
Belmont Park – First Race. Post time: 1 p.m. ET
1 – Zainalarab (8/5)
Diminutive daughter of War Front was a $1 million Keeneland yearling purchase and makes her debut in this six-furlong sprint that ushers in the fall Belmont Park season. She has done everything asked in the morning for a barn that hits at a strong 21% with first-timers while displaying excellent quickness, so we’re expecting a winning effort first crack out of the box from this War Front filly out of Monmouth Oaks winner Delightful Joy. At 8/5 on the morning line, we can use her in the win pool and as a rolling exotic single.
Golden Gate Fields – Seventh Race. Post time: 4:15 p.m. PT
English-bred filly makes her U.S. debut after a couple of promising all-weather runs overseas, and if she duplicates either one of those efforts today the daughter of Golden Horn should earn her diploma in this one mile grass affair for distaffers. She gets Lasix and high-percentage jockey Kyle Frey following a relatively brief work tab that indicates the Manuel Badilla-trained sophomore arrived in the Bay Area fit and ready. The barn does very well with these types of imports, so at 5/2 on the morning line she should be able to outclass the competition.
