Gulfstream Park Race 4 (2:25 pm ET)
#2 Robbing Robin (7-2 ML)
Trainer Kathleen O'Connell has a remarkable 7-for-16 record with debut runners going this 4-1/2 furlong dash distance at Gulfstream Park over the past 5 years. The average winner among those has paid just under $9. Win bet.
Belmont Park Race 8 (6:42 pm ET)
#8 Technical Analysis (9-2 ML)
The extended distance of a mile and one-eighth and the softer course conditions should play strongly to the European pedigree of this colt moving up in class after back-to-back wins. Several top contenders here look best around one mile, so look for this one to be finishing best late. Win-place bet to get Belmont Stakes Week rolling in the Big Apple.
