Horse Racing Picks for Belmont Park – Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018
Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018
Going back to Belmont for this write-up. Some good races going on this card.
Pay attention to the weather.
Race 3 – MOHAWK
KHARAFA- winner is the West Point Handicap at Saratoga. Horse prefers a firm course. Pay attention to track conditions. Legit exotics threat.
RED KNIGHT- stepping up in class to 200k ranks. He will be running late. Mott trains and he does well on these NY bred races.
OFFERING PLAN- Castellano/ Brown combo. 10 of 11 in money at Belmont. Bullet work two back – 1 of 26. Legit WIN!!
Race 5 – THE TICONDEROGA
WEGETSDAMUNNYS- Franco rides for Englehart on the inner turf. Love Franco on the inner turf. Must use in all wagers.
FIFTY-FIVE- if you follow me you have heard of this horse before. He is a monster closer. Will be a favorite or second choice at post time. Fun horse to watch run. He closes like no other.
LAMONEDA- hate to pick the obvious, but this horse has won four in a row. I think this one and Fifty-Five finish 1-2. If I see the exacta probables over $8.00. I will hammer an exacta box.
Maiden race on turf. I look for a second time out horses in this scenario. There could be bombs away here.
EXCHANGE FEVER- the second timeout should improve off a career debut where he faded in the deep stretch to fourth.
NO MORE MIRACLES- Franco/Donk combo. These two are very underrated. We made big bucks at Saratoga following these two. Taking this one at a HUGE price. Second time out angle at work here.
RO JO – rider switch to Irad Ortiz peaks my interest on this third time out the horse. Raced at Saratoga where he faded in the stretch badly to get third.
Good luck and thanks for horseracing with Dietz!
