Horse Racing picks for Belmont Park race track on Thursday, September 30: Starfront out in front

John Velazquez (8) aboard Audible trained by Todd Pletcher

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Thursday, including at Belmont Park race track. We are still on fire with our picks, having nailed 74 winners in our last 179 races dating back to early August while profiting 103.7 units during this stretch. Here are 4 runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races on Tuesday. It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

3:09 pm (Race 3) – Castle Chaos 2/1

Displayed plenty of ability when racing close to the pace prior to finishing runner-up in a small field seven furlong maiden claiming race when making his debut at Saratoga at the start of the month. The son of Palace Malice was claimed by current trainer Robert N Falcone Jr following that effort and Luis Saez’s mount looks up to taking this contest switched to a maiden special weight following a 49.02 four furlong breeze five days ago.

5:16 pm Belmont Park (Race 7) – Starfront 6/5

The Juddmonte Farms homebred showed plenty of ability when making a winning debut when making all the running to core by four-and-three-quarter-lengths in a six furlong maiden special weight at this circuit just under a year ago. Absent since the daughter of Malibu Moon is out of a mare who performed with credit in stakes company and she is taken to maintain her unbeaten record with Irad Ortiz taking over in the saddle for trainer Chad Brown.

6:18 pm Belmont Park (Race 9) – Apurate 2/1

Proved a disappointment stepping up to stakes company when down the field ninth in the Van Clief Stakes at Colonial Downs last month. Had finished a good second when beaten a length having raced from mid-pack in an allowance over a mile-and-one-sixteenth at Monmouth Park prior and dropped to a standard claiming race for the first time the daughter of Summer Front is the selection to register a second career success having broken her maiden at this venue last October.
