Belmont: Fast and firm


  Fast and firm for Thursday's card at Belmont Park, with temperatures that are a bit more seasonable after yesterday's steambath.

  The first 2-year-old maiden dash of the season is race 2. From the looks of the early money in the daily double, the Wesley Ward-trained filly Princess Zip will be favored over the John Terranova-trained colt Maximo Star in a field that scratched down to five.
