Horses to Watch – 6/5/17 – Winning Ponies

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch ? – Well, you surely can’t dine on these runners but if they come back off a troubled effort you may find yourself buying for the whole gang.

With only five days to the 3rd leg of the Triple Crown the Belmont Stakes, we can always use a winner or two that will get our bankroll back in fine fashion. – Just keep your eyes peeled and get ready to double-down the next time they hit the track. – Best of luck from your friends at Winning Ponies !
