Belmont Park Race 6 // 5:43 pm ET

#3 Miss Bonnie T (3-1 ML)

Rider change to Jose Lezcano, who has been New York's hottest jockey in June and exceptional on the turf course of late. Hard-luck filly has lost her last 4 starts by a combined margin of only one-half of a length! Hot hands of Lezcano may be what she needs. Win bet.

Belmont Race 8 // 6:45 pm ET

#6 Ice Princess (4-1 ML)

In a race that should be hotly contested early by several contenders, the best finisher consistently is Ice Princess. Look for her to be rolling late under jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr., who is returning from injury after 2 weeks on the sidelines. Win bet.
