There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Friday, including at Belmont Park race track. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now, and yesterday’s 2 wins from 3 picks means were are up +288.70 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. Let’s keep it rolling!

Here are our best bets for today’s high-quality action at Belmont Park.

4:42 pm ET Belmont Park (Race 8, Belmont Gold Cup) – Abaan 5/2 (2-star play)

Race 8 at Belmont Park is the first of 4 straight graded races and this is the $400,000 Grade 2 Belmont Gold Cup stakes over 2 miles on the turf for older horses. One who catches the eye is Abaan, who is by Will Take Charge, a long-striding galloper who had stamina in abundance.

Todd Pletcher’s gelding has won over this trip at Gulfstream Park, which is a massive plus as this is a specialist distance so he is the one they all have to beat.

5:17 pm ET Belmont Park (Race 9, True North Stakes) – Jackie’s Warrior 2/5 (3-star play)

The $300,000 Grade 2 True North Stakes is all about Jackie’s Warrior and she is likely to go off a very short priced favourite. I wouldn’t want to be taking her on.

She is a 4-time Grade 1 winner, one of which was at this course, and this extended 6-furlong trip should be ideal, so this should be a routine victory.

5:50 pm ET Belmont Park (Race 10, New York Stakes) – Bleecker Street 5/2 (2-star play)

Chad Brown saddles more than half the field in the $750,000 Grade 1 New York Stakes as he is represented by 4 of the 7 due to line up and it will be something of a surprise should none of his team win. I like his filly in stall 5, Bleecker Street, who is a perfect 6 from 6 thus far.

This tough daughter of Quality Road has been a revelation while moving through the grades and she’s already a triple graded-stakes winner who doesn’t look to be in any mood to relinquish her unbeaten record just yet.

6:22 pm ET Belmont Park (Race 11, Intercontinental Stakes) – Jouster 12/1 (1-star play)

A field of 13 fillies and mares is set to line up for the finale at Belmont Park, the $200,000 Grade 3 Intercontinental Stakes over 6 furlongs on the turf, and Jouster can hit the board at double-digit odds.

Flavien Prat’s mount is a Grade 2 winner and should come on fitness-wise from her last run at Keeneland, so it would not be a surprise if she goes close from a good draw in stall 5.


Late Pick 3

Race 8: 2, 7
Race 9: 3, 4
Race 10: 3, 5, 7
Race 11: 5, 9, 11

Stake: $0.50
Total stake: $18
