#2 Keota– our top pick was a very easy winner in her last two and was claimed both times. She now runs for McLaughlin who is winning at 21% here and Saez, who rode her to a 5 length romp last out, stays in the irons.

Belmont Park is a major Thoroughbred horse-racing facility in the northeastern United States, located in Elmont, New York, just east of the New York City limits. Opened 113 years ago on May 4, 1905, it is operated by the non-profit New York Racing Association, as are Aqueduct and Saratoga Race Course. The group was formed in 1955 as the Greater New York Association to assume the assets of the individual associations that ran Belmont, Aqueduct, Saratoga, and the now-defunct Jamaica Racetrack.
Belmont Park is typically open for racing from late April through mid-July (known as the Spring meet), and again from mid-September through late October (the Fall meet). It is widely-known as the home of the Belmont Stakes in early June, regarded as the “Test of the Champion”, the third leg of the Triple Crown.
Along with Saratoga in Upstate New York, Keeneland and Churchill Downs in Kentucky, and Del Mar and Santa Anita in California, Belmont is considered one of the elite racetracks in North America.
The race park’s main dirt track has earned the nickname, “the Big Sandy,” given its prominent overall dimensions (1 1⁄2 miles (2.4 km)) and the deep, sometimes tiring surface. Belmont is also sometimes known as “The Championship Track” because almost every major champion in racing history since the early 20th century has competed on the racecourse – including all of the Triple Crown winners.
Belmont hosted its largest crowd in 2004, when 120,139 saw Smarty Jones upset by Birdstone in its Triple Crown bid
