Belmont: Fast & firm; $26k pick-6 carryover


  The main track is fast and the turf courses are firm for the third and final twilight Friday card of the meet, with first post at 3:00 p.m.

  There is a $26,015 pick-6 carryover that begins with race 4 at 4:30 p.m.

  The Linda Rice-trained mares Karakorum Elektra and Lady Rizzi ran one-two in Thursday's nightcap, and she enters the day just one win behind meet leader Todd Pletcher, at 24-23.

  Pletcher has only two runners entered, but both are morning-line favorites: Finale (2-1) in race 6, and Savvy Supreme (5-2) in race 8, a $60,000 overnight stakes.

  Rice has five entered, including ML choices My Snookie's Pal (8-5) in race 2, and Miss Mexique (2-1) in race 9.

  Ramon Dominguez rode three winners Thursday and opened up a 67-62 lead on Javier Castellano.
