Belmont: Fast & firm


  The main track is fast and the turf courses are firm for Saturday's 10-race card, highlighted by the Grade 2 Vagrancy Handicap (9th) for fillies and mares.

  Hilda's Passion, who set the pace and finished second while against the grain of a strong outside closer's bias in the Humana Distaff last out, will be odds-on in the 6 1/2-furlong Vagrancy as she spots four rivals anywhere from 6-10 pounds. Post time is 5:17 p.m. Eastern.

  There is a $300,000 guaranteed late pick-4 that begins with race 7 at 4:12 p.m.
