Today’s NY Hot List races to watch – June 29, 2013 at Belmont Park

By Bob Ehalt and Shawn Rychling

Hot List Key:

A : A preferred horse to watch                  B: Secondary horse to watch

*C: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 1st through 3rd

*D: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 4th or worse

* - 4 or more betting notches if 11-1 or more.

1st race – (6) Tina’s Note (a B last time) has run a little better since switching back to the turf her last three starts. Improving every time out and may be peaking after a near miss last race off a 6-wide move. (2)Talmadge Hill (D) faded while on the lead last time in debut vs. winners, but is likely to improve here. (4) Guyana Star drops to level at which she won in April. (5) Ascended Fever is yet another one seeking class relief and eligible to improve.

5th race – (6) Fiona’s Hero (D) takes a huge class drop and is the horse to beat if she can just get a clean start for once. (4) Arctic Missile is also taking a healthy drop in class, but needs to overcome a long layoff. (7) My Italian Ices debuts for a quality, first-out barn. (2) Everydoghashisday has had plenty of chances, but gets a rare start against maiden claimers.

8th race – (2) Anjaz (A) comes off two sharp U.S. starts and both were in graded stakes so we’re looking for a big effort here third off the layoff at a price.  (7) Dream Peace may be the horse to beat as she just looks a little faster than her rivals especially if the turf is a little soft. (4) Tannery beat many of today’s foes last time in the Sheepshead Bay and should be a major player here third off the layoff. (5) Minakshi was close at long odds last time and is eligible to move forward.

10th race – (4) Trainingforsuccess (C) just missed last time at this level and has been on the verge of breaking through for a while now. (5) Prime Devil may be the horse to beat on the class drop and he seems to prefer the off going. (9) Moravitz is a first-time starter for Pletcher which is enough for him to get a lot of attention in this field. (10) Plausibly has a big chance if this race is taken off the turf.

Best bet: Fiona’s Hero (5th); Best value: Tina’s Note (1st); Anjaz (8th)        

No.
