Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Thursday, including at Belmont Park race track. We are in fine form with our picks, having nailed 82 winners in our last 198 races dating back to early August while profiting 107.15 units during this stretch. Here are 4 runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races on Monday. It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

1:09 pm Belmont Park (Race 2) – I’m Perfect Too 7/5

Unfancied in the market on debut at Saratoga in August, she was bumped and squeezed at the start, finding herself eighteen lengths behind as a result. She showed a remarkable turn of foot in the stretch, closing with every stride and finding herself just half a length down at the line. It was no surprise to see her graduate on her next start, relishing an extra furlong to wear down her rivals later. She pulled a long way clear with the winner and she’s entitled to improve further for the step up to the mile. She looks just the type to kick on in allowance company for Thomas Albertrani.

3:49 pm Belmont Park (Race 7) – Awesome Indra 9/5

Thomas Morley’s charge is unbeaten at Belmont, winning a pair of claiming races earlier this year, including a $55,000 contest back in July. Two subsequent runs at Saratoga have seen her underperform, but she’s capable of far better than that and she should relish a return to Belmont. A small break should have done her the world of good too and given Morley’s recent hotstreak, which has seen him win with 11 of his last 50 runners, she’s an obvious candidate for another victory.

4:21 pm Belmont Park (Race 8) – Byhubbyhellomoney 6/1

A winner at the second time of asking at Belmont, she wasn’t disgraced on his first start against winners at Saratoga next time. Two subsequent starts have come at stakes level, going close in the New York Stallion Series before a neck victory in the Fleet Indian. She’s clearly improving and a return to Belmont is in her favour, as she has won over this track and distance in the past. Still unexposed after just five starts, the best should be yet to come and she can put a draw in gate one to good use.

4:52 pm Belmont Park (Race 9) – Tales of Makenna 3/1

A daughter of Tale of Ekati, she broke very slowly on debut at Belmont in July, forfeiting many lengths. That effort is best forgiven, as she was also forced to race wide on the turn, and she posted a much improved effort when second at Saratoga in August. She flew home from a very unpromising position for second and that effort is worth upgrading, as she was once again forced to spin wide. That effort sets the standard and with natural improvement, she can surely graduate at the third attempt.
