Belmont Horse Racing Picks for Thursday 6/2/22
Starting at 3:05 p.m. EST, we have nine races at Belmont Park. Using numberFire’s projections as a guide, here are some of the best bets to make at FanDuel Racing.
As always, check the program for scratches and changes, and monitor the weather and track conditions.
(I will reference Equibase's Speed Figure in selected races, which tells you how fast a horse has been running in each of its races -- adjusted for track, distances, and conditions.)
Kawhi Me a River and Big Everest, Race 3
Race 3 is an Allowance race at 7 furlongs on the turf. The top pick for numberFire’s data is Kawhi Me a River (7/2).
Surprisingly, Kawhi Me a River has yet to hit the board against winners despite earning strong speed figures.
Big Everest (7/2) gets Joel Rosario back in the irons, and he’s live if he’s ready to reach his potential. He's been a visually impressive maiden winner when going a mile at Saratoga last summer.
Pirate Life and Ryan’s Cat, Race 6
Race 6 is an Allowance race at 7 furlongs on the turf. numberFire's data has Ryan’s Cat (5/2) to win ahead of Pirate Life (9/2). Biz Biz Buzz is scratched.
Ryan’s Cat has a pair of third-place finishes over his last two starts with improved speed ratings. Pirate Life is 2-for-2 to start his career and ships in from Gulfstream with top jockey Luis Saez riding
Moon Over Miami and Ever Dangerous, Race 8
Race 8 is an Allowance race for state-bred fillies and mares at 1 mile. The numberFire algorithm projects Glynn Country (8/1) and Moon Over Miami (7/2) to move up since favorite Doswell was scratched.
Moon Over Miami runs off a layoff after competing in graded stakes, including a third-place finish here a year ago in the Grade 1 Man O’ War.
Euro entry Flop Shot (7/2) steps up in class and will take some money as she’s trained by Chad Brown. Ever Dangerous (6/1) comes off a lengthy layoff but is training well and runs her best when fresh.
