Belmont: Fast and firm


   Fast and firm at beautiful Belmont Park, which some press box wags have taken to calling The Big Empty.

  There is a two-day carryover of $105,745 in the pick-6, which begins with race 4 at 2:36 p.m. The only dirt race in  the sequence is race 6, a maiden special-weight at 1 1/16 miles that has scratched down to six. The turf races, meanwhile, are 8x9x9x9x10 after scratches.
