Belmont: Fast and firm


  Fast and firm to start the six-day week at Belmont Park, with temperatures making it feel more like mid-July than the last week in May.

  There is a pick-6 carryover of $42,779 starting with race 4, post time 2:36 p.m. Those playing it on a shoestring will probably look to build around Franny Freud (7th race), a 3-year-old filly who takes on five male rivals in the New York Stallion. She is trying turf for the first time, as is her main rival, Make Note.

  The other likely single is Belle of the Hall (8th), who is 6-5 on the morning line on the strength of a five-length debut victory at Gulfstream Park for Tom Albertrani.
