Belmont: Another odds-on entry goes down


  Not a good day for short-priced entries so far. After the 1-4 entry of Goodday and All Drama finished fourth and fifth in the opener, the second half of the early double brought us Green Bananas and Stud Muffin, who managed to finish third and fifth in a five-horse field.

   The not-so-dynamic duo incinerated $18,976 of the $29,884 place pool, as Merlin Bay ($23.20) came up the rail late to nail pacesetter Gentle Edwin as the longest shot on the board.
