BELMONT PARK Race #4
Sunday 07/12 02:10 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (KLICKITAT) (3-1) - He returns today from a 6.5-month layoff a NEW gelding, and he is racing in a claimer for the first time. The 4yo finished 2nd in three straight last Fall against tougher and has been competitive in all three local attempts. He'll be tough to beat if ready.
2nd pick: #10 (Michael's Bad Boy) (9-2) - A lightly raced homebred, 3yo rallied to miss by just under a length when going a mile here at this level June 6. It was his first start since Nov. 2, his first in a claimer, and he draws a fine post as he shortens up a furlong.
3rd pick: #12 (Petrus) (4-1) - A nice debut here on June 6 saw him have a wide trip when checking in 4th, two lengths behind 'Michael's Bad Boy.' The 3yo received good betting support then and is in the win mix today.
4th pick: #5 (Mitzrayim) (12-1) - This gelding rallied to finish 4th of 12, missing by 1.5 lengths when going six furlongs at this level June 13. A career-best, it came following a seven-month layoff, and he's a threat as he stretches out in distance.
