Early Thoughts on Super Saturday

It’s Super Saturday at Belmont Park and  here  are my early thoughts. This is before the scratches, changes and precise track and course conditions, but you gotta start somewhere.
Beldame… I look for It’s Tricky to sit behind Cash for Clunkers, who should be the early speed, and then get first run on Royal Delta to prevail at the finish. Let’s hope she breaks well.
 Kelso… Word is Shack WILL run. Will the track be totally dried out for the 3:30 Post time? If it is, then he’s my horse. 
Vosburgh… Maybe Rothko is the horse in here. Runs very well off a freshening, and this son of Arch may just   love Big Sandy.
Flower Bowl…. Love Nahrain. She should enjoy the soft ground, she’s dropping 12 pounds off her last. We know she can ship and run well, and she picks up JV.
Turf Classic… How many times am I going to let Little Mile fool me? He can run over anything. He is looking for his 12th win in 20 starts, and he will go as far as he can. Roman’s other horse, Finnegan’s Wake could be the one to upset his stablemate, with his closing kick. Has had trouble in last two.
Jockey Club Gold Cup….Appears that Fort Larned is training great. Think the Broad Brush on the bottom will get him there.

Good luck to all's a great day of racing!
