The turf course may be very soft this weekend at New York. This little tidbit may be just what the doctor ordered for a sweet victory. Last week, we caught a 3-4 shot sleeping at the wheel over the soft going. Let’s go for two-in-a row.

Go to Race #9 at Belmont on Saturday. It is the G-2 New York Stakes, and it offers a bit of value to be had.

#3 Criticism is the 5-2 favorite. This mare has lost some of her races when the green gets wet. After watching the races yesterday, it is hard to believe that the turf course will be dry without a magic wand.

With that being said, you may want to take a look at a couple of runners that may offer a run for your money. Go to #5 Backseat Rhythm. If you look at her PP’s, she has run very well over yielding and good courses. She is 3/4 at Belmont ITM, and is cutting back in distance which is always a good thing.

How about #6 Dynaforce? She is 2/2 ITM at Belmont, and her dam has dropped 10 turf winners from 12 starters. Now, that is good shootin’. Second time off of a layoff is a nice angle, and made a middle move as a beaten favorite last out. Add all of this up, and she is a player.

I would advise downloading the entire card to max out your gimmicks. WinningPonies has been on fire, and the trend should continue. Just take a look at the predictions, and remember that you can update the turf rating, if the card has a new track condition.
