Most tracks get fast when they get wet. For Belterra Park, right outside of Cincinnati, it really gets quick. This is something you’ll want to remember when making a wager on the card. – When it gets wet they protect the turf and races come off the greensward. So, if Mother Nature is predicting rain, you can forget about seeing turf racing for the day. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some races at Belterra Park.


Tuesday – 88 degrees – 60% chance of rain



Race #1 – Alw $23,000 N2L – 1 mile – 12:35 pm EDT

#3 – Flat Out Beauty = She exits the $75,000 Vivacious from the turf and hasn’t seen this level of competition since 9/5/19 where she finished 2nd by 3/4. – Her sire Flat Out bats 17% with mud runners, and if the track comes up wet as planned she should relish the surface. Use with: #5 – Yellah, and #6 – Spit’s Image.


Race #2 – O.C. $18,000 – 1:04 pm EDT

#7 – Sun Dress = Makes her 3rd off the layoff and is the daughter of Archarcharch. She is 3/3 with wins over the track and won last out over a good track that came off the turf wire-to-wire. 3rd off the shelf yields a 17% win clip for the barn.


Race #4 – O.C. $40,000 – 1 1/16 on the turf – 2:02 pm EDT

If this race comes off the turf – Don’t hesitate to use this colt

#3 – Two Eagles = has been off for 10 months for trainer Tom Drury. If that name rings a bell it’s because he trained the Bluegrass winner last weekend with Art Collector. – He has tons of speed and been working at Skylight Training Center where Drury has his runners. He is 3/3 ITM on off tracks and should be right near the front stalking #4 – Diamond Dust for trainer Tim Hamm who notched a win at Saratoga on Friday. Box with #4 and win money on Two Eagles.


Race #7 – Claiming 12,500 N2L – 1 1/16 on the turf – 3:29 pm EDT – If this race is off the turf he’s even more dangerous.

#7 – #5 – Our Flag = Speedster for Dan Kobiskie who is winning 43% at the meet and Crystal Conning an apprentice who is winning 34%. Together they score at a 42% clip as he drops down two class levels. His maiden win two back was taken off the turf and he rolled to win by 16 lengths.
