Race 1

(1) Wicked Lady
+180 (9/5)
(2) Truancy
+600 (6/1)
(3) Mike’s Little Diva
+500 (5/1)
(4) Sweet Mystery
+800 (8/1)
(5) Boss of All
+1200 (12/1)
(6) Let Her Insipire U
+140 (7/5)
  • Post Time:3:05 p.m. EST
  • Distance: 6 ½ Furlongs
  • Purse: $75,000

The first at Belmont Park is a $75,000 event covering 6 ½ furlongs on the dirt. Look at Wicked Lady and Let Her Inspire U to have a worthwhile trip on Thursday.

Wicked Lady will make her third appearance for Kenny McPeek. She finished 3rd in back-to-back races at Belmont and most recently Aqueduct on December 9, 2021.

Wicked Lady showed 3rd in a $70,000 event in that one. It was a solid try. The $110,000 filly hasn’t been seen on the racecourse in an event since then. She should be open to improvement.

Let Her Inspire U is winless in three attempts, but continues to run better. She’s 4th, 3rd, 2nd in three attempts, most recently placing 2nd behind Venti Valentine by a nose for $75,000.

If Let Her Inspire U can stay on that course, she should be rewarded with a win.

Race 5

+500 (5/1)
(2) Dancing Buck
+350 (7/2)
(3) Biz Biz Buzz
+1500 (15/1)
(4) Ghost Giant
+800 (8/1)

(9) Bryce Canyon
+800 (8/1)
(10) Dust Devil
+200 (2/1)

Post Time: 5:13 p.m. EST
Distance:7 Furlongs

Race 5 is a $92,000 event covering 7 furlongs on the turf. Get a good look at Supply and Demand, and Microphone should be in contention for a win.

Supply and Demand finished 3 for 8 with a winning trip three races back. He beat One Whirlwind Ride by 1 length in a $55,000 assignment on October 14, 2021.

That was a nice run from Supply and Demand, though he didn’t go back to the winner’s circle in his last two races. He showed 3rd on May 5 for $92,000 in his latest race.

Microphone is from overseas in Ireland and likes to run on the turf. He’s 1st, 2nd, 5th in three attempts, with a win on debut at Gulfstream Park.

That was a nice effort in a $26,500 event. His next race was impressive, too, despite a loss. Microphone placed 2nd behind Mid Day Image by 5 ¼ lengths for $61,000. His speed figure was impressive at 107.

In Microphone’s most recent outing, he finished 5th in an $82,000 event. He’s capable of a lot more and could prove it today.

For the best value, Supply and Demand has to be worth a best bet in Race 5.

Race 6

(1) Our Man Mike (1A) Amundson
+450 (9/2)
(2) Double Shot
+1000 (10/1)
(3) Saint Selby
+200 (2/1)
(4) Big Bobby
+300 (3/1)
(5) Masked Marauder
+350 (7/2)
(6) Jemography
+1200 (12/1)
(7) Bronx Bomber
+800 (8/1)
  • Post Time:5:43 p.m. EST
  • Distance:6 Furlongs
  • Purse: $85,000

The sixth at Belmint is a 6-furlong event worth $85,000. This is one of the biggest races of the day, which will take place on the dirt. Consider Big Bobby and Saint Selby to have a chance at a win.

Big Bobby has two wins in seven outings, with a recent win three races back on October 28, 2021. The gelding beat Big Brown Shoes by 2 ½ lengths in an $80,000 event.

This was a nice trip, and did pretty well following the win. He placed 2nd behind Saratoga Pal by a half-length for $74,000.

He needs to return to that form after finishing 5th on New Year’s Day in the same grade. Saint Selby should give Big Bobby a big charge.

Saint Selby has finished 6th, 1st, 2nd, 1st in his previous four attempts. He was rolling before faltering to 6th on May 15 for $45,000.

That was uncharacteristic of Saint Selby after a $72,000 win by 1 length. If Saint Selby can shake off a bad luck performance, Saint Selby should get to the winner’s circle.
