Horse Racing picks at Belmont Park and Santa Anita for Sunday, June 13: Choose The Chosen Vron

Horse Racing picks at Belmont Park and Santa Anita for Sunday, June 13: Choose The Chosen Vron

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Saturday, including at Belmont Park and Santa Anita race tracks. Here are four runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races. Let’s dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

4:08 pm Belmont Park (Race 7) – Barista Vixen +300

Arriving on a hat-trick, she’s been in fantastic form of late, winning races at both Aqueduct and Belmont. Most recently, she quickened clear by five lengths to score over track and distance in claiming company, earning her this step up in grade. Still relatively lightly-raced, the best is likely yet to come from this daughter of Algorithms, who can overcome a poor draw to make it three wins on the bounce under Manny Franco.

5:12 pm Belmont Park (Race 9) – Elston +500

 Sold for $335,00 as a yearling, this son of Declaration Of War is evidently well-regarded and made a positive debut when fifth over six furlongs at Belmont. He got the message late in the day, doing all his best work in the stretch, passing beaten horses effortlessly. Stretching out to seven furlongs is an obvious positive for him and he’s been gelded since we last saw him. He does need to overcome a year’s absence, but his recent work has been strong and he has an excellent chance of making a winning return.

8:26 pm Santa Anita (Race 9) – Dogtag +180

Richard Mandella’s mare loves Santa Anita, with a course record that reads 2112. That includes a victory in this race twelve months ago, winning the Possibly Perfect by a comfortable length and a half. This year’s renewal looks tougher on paper, but she ran a big race off the layoff when second in the Grade 2 Royal Heroine over an inadequate mile. Back up in distance at her happiest hunting ground, she can make it back to back wins in the race, this time with Umberto Rispoli aboard.

8:56 pm Santa Anita (Race 10) – The Chosen Vron +160

 A big race double could await Umberto Rispoli, as this three-year-old has done nothing but improve for Eric Kruljac. He’s won three of his four career starts, with his sole defeat coming in the San Vincente off the layoff. Subsequent to that, he’s won the Echo Eddie and Grade 3 Lazaro Barrera in facile fashion, progressing markedly with each racecourse visit. He goes beyond seven furlongs for the first time, but his run in the San Vincente suggested he’d relish it and he’s ultimately the one to beat.
