Belmont Race 5 Grandslam Template

Starting a GS with a 6F turf sprint for maiden 2 YO's followed by another 2 YO dirt sprint  is always a recipe for disaster, but I will take a stab at it.  Yesterdays GS, paid a nice $200 when Deciphering Dreams took down Cookram Road.  Will up the ante a little and do a $4 GS . Here goes:

Race 5 Turf Only
#2 Image of Disco ML 12/1

Belmont Race Five All Turf Grandslam Template

Fun little bet my running  buddy slash brother in law got me into this spring, the grandslam.  Pick a horse to be in the money (win or place or show) in the first 3 legs of the bet and hit the grandslam in the final, i.e pick the winner in the final leg.  Payouts can vary from dismal to cha ching.  Our strategy has been to go semi chalk to mid range odds in the 1st three legs and hit the ALL button in the 4th leg, praying for a BOMB to take it home.  We would also do a 2nd ticket with a majority of the wager with long odds horses and leaving the projected heavy favorite out in the final leg but only do it for a $1 payout ticket.  Our best hit came at the end of the spring Belmont meet when Hooligans Delight hit the grandslam at 25 to 1 and cashed us $500 ticket and also a few at Toga that paid in the low $200's.  Overall its an inexpensive bet that is tons of fun.

Wednesday's Belmont play

Racing action continues tomorrow in ny as Belmont sizes up an interesting 9 race card. Race 8 features 12 fillies and mares going six on the grass. #6 queens or better (3-1) has ran good enough in the past to blow past this field. However looking at his racing patteren, were thinking she's due for a bounced effort, which makes this race and value increase tremendously.. Were going to wheel a tri and exacta in this spot and hope to hit big at Belmont tomorrow

Opening Day belmont play for Saturday

Race 5
features colts going 6 furlongs on the weeds. depending on whether or not this stays on the grass will dictate this play, especially after all the rain ny has been getting this past week. If it does stay on the green we are throwing 50 place/show on #8 Papa Bear ml (6-1). This older proven colt is in a good spot facing weeker. He has also had great runs at Belmont before that would trounce this bunch.

Which opens up this Friday, so stay tuned for plays towards the end of the week. Till then have a good week, and thanks for stopping by.
- Top of the Stretch Crew

todays finale play

Race 3
7- REACH A DECISION- Got a good educational run when finishing 3rd in his career debut going one mile on dirt in May. Was moved to the turf and stretched out to 1 3/16 miles for his second career start where he tracked in second before taking over the lead sooner than he wanted to when the leader bore out up the backstretch but was able to hold sway the rest of the way for the nice score 7/29. Moves back to the dirt in this 1 1/8 miles 1x allowance for his first try with winners and an off track shouldn't bother him. Should prove a tough foe once again this afternoon.

Exotics with-

A- 2- Katz My Song, 8- Cease

B- 5- Thunder Chief
