BELMONT PARK Race #4

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #12 (MR BUCKLEY) (7-2) - A nice debut Feb. 29 at Aqueduct saw him chase the pace while wide, then stay on gamely to finish 2nd to a 'much the best' winner. A home-bred by the late 'City Zip,' this 3yo draws a tough post, and I give him a slight edge, but make sure you box your wagers in this contest.
2nd pick: #14 (Winner's Laugh) (6-1) - Nicely bred colt enters off pair of very quick back-to-back five-furlong drills on the training track here. A son of 'Broken Vow,' he's from the small but high-quality operation of former NYRA president Barry K. Schwartz, and trainer Horacio DePaz has won with 12 of 47 (26%) with first-time-starters over the past five years.
3rd pick: #11 (Farragut) (12-1) - When last in action, this colt by 'Afleet Alex' finished 2nd of eight, beaten by almost seven lengths at this level and distance March 15. Working steadily, trainer Patrick Quick had a winner here on yesterday's card.
4th pick: #9 (Top of the Mint) (10-1) - On the sidelines since late July at Saratoga, he finished an even 4th of 10, beaten by 7.5 lengths that day going seven furlongs at this level. No speed type can grab a share at a big price if ready.
