Over at Picks and Ponderings, I look at stakes action both here and out east!
Saturday’s card at Arlington features a pair of turf stakes, the Mike Spellman Memorial and the Black Tie Affair Handicap. Both drew small yet classy fields, but the Illinois turf route division is still such a good group that both should be exciting, competitive contests.
Of course, Belmont’s card also grabs attention. In addition to the Belmont Stakes — with Justify’s Triple Crown attempt — the card features a full day of stakes action. At Picks and Ponderings, I look at the Belmont horse-by-horse as well as give picks for all the stakes races on the card.
