Horse Racing picks at Belmont Park for Sunday, June 27: Cambi Lion will roar

Horse Racing picks at Belmont Park for Sunday, June 27: Cambi Lion will roar

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Sunday, including at Belmont Park race track. Here are three 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.

2:02 pm Belmont Park (Race 3) – Cambi Lion +200

 Claude McGaughey’s son of Medaglia D’Oro has improved with each of his three starts to date, catching the eye when moving up at Belmont last time over the mile and a sixteenth distance. He came from a mile back that day, making plenty of late gains in the stretch. He finished full of running and stretching out further in distance today should unlock plenty of improvement. Kept at $90,000 level, it’d be disappointing if he was unable to make it fourth-time lucky in this contest.

3:02 pm Belmont Park (Race 5) – Miss Teheran +180

Has run to a good standard since joining Chad Brown from France, despite winning just one of her six American starts. That came at Gulfstream Park on her first run of 2021, subsequently finishing a good fourth in the Grade 2 Hillsborough at Tampa Bay. Perhaps more crucially, she was ahead of Bacchanalia over track and distance last time, coming from a very unpromising position. She should have no problem confirming that form today to land the spoils.

4:08 pm Belmont Park (Race 7) – Tale of the Union +160

 Enjoyed a productive 2020 campaign, winning an allowance contest at Belmont back in July before three second-place finishes at allowance optional claiming level. Bumping into some useful horses along the way, he went within half a length of scoring over track and distance two starts ago. This is his first start of the year, but he’s been working well at Belmont in recent weeks and John Terranova should have him in strong shape for this. With that in mind, he’s the one to side with under John Velazquez.
