Player Quick Pick: Belmont All G1 Pick 4

June 7th, 2014

by Molly Jo Rosen

Between the LL Cool J soundcheck as I was leaving the track last night and starting today with a California Chrome escort to the track (click here to walk with us!)... it's been a really cool whirlwind for #TeamBetAmerica in New York.

But - let's face it - what we all really want to do on Belmont Day is make money. And I think the Late Pick 4 is totally the way to do it! *fingers crossed*

note: these are the horses I would use on the ticket, not necessarily in preference order

Belmont Park race 8 | 4 pm ET G1 Just A Game for 4&up F&M going 1 mi. (T)

6-Stephanie's Kitten ~ may not be the same filly she was before getting sick last year, but she's all class 9-Discreet Marq ~ the definition of consistent 10-Better Lucky ~ always runs her race

Belmont Park race 9 | 4:48 pm ET G1 Metropolitan Hcp (the MetMile) for 3&up going 1 mi.

1-Palace Malice ~ winner of last year's Belmont hasn't lost a race yet this year 4-Goldencents ~ could not look any better off the layoff 12-Romansh ~ training very well off the game win 13-Shakin It Up ~ always right there at the wire

Belmont Park race 10 | 5:45 pm ET G1 Manhattan for 4&up going 1-1/4 mi. (T)

1-Imagining ~ JohnnyV gets back up on ultra-consistent chestnut 4-Grandeur ~ training great for 2nd US start 6-Seek Again ~ really impressed in US debut and nearly out-nosed Wise Dan

Belmont Park race 11 | 6:52 pm ET G1 Belmont Stakes for 3yo going 1-1/2 mi. you play this race one of two ways: either single Chrome or leave him off the ticket entirely

1-Medal Count ~ I fell in love with this horse in a September 28th workout last year and he's done absolutely nothing to change my mind + he's got the best marathon pedigree in the field 2-California Chrome ~ looking for 7th straight win and to add to the 27-1/2 combined lengths margin by which he's won the last 6 4-Commanding Curve ~ hasn't run a bad race when Bridgmohan's been aboard 5-Ride On Curlin ~ he's Storm Cat Redux but he always runs his race and he just might finally break through and win one of these big ones soon 7-Samraat ~ he's game when tested and that might make things interesting late in the lane

It's fantastic that this Pick 4 is a $.50 minimum wager: it makes so much sense financially and allows us to put more horses on the ticket!

On a $.50 minimum ... 6,9,10 / 1,4,12,13 / 1,4,6 / 1,2,4,5,7 ... $90 total
