Belmont: Hazy & fast/firm


  It's hazy enough that you can barely make out North Shore Towers off in the distance, with summer-like temperatures and humidity.

  There is a $31,000 pick-6 carryover, beginning with race 4 at 2:35 p.m. Eastern.

  Midnight Mischief (1st, $7.80), third back from a layoff for Bill Mott, saved ground on both turns under Julien Leparoux, tipped out to go after pacesetter Laureate Conductor turning for home and outfinished that one in a pedestrian 2:03.09 for the 1 1/4 miles.
