Belmont: The heat is on

Email

  The main track is fast and the turf courses are firm to start Belmont Week. Temperatures are expected to reach the mid-90s today and tomorrow, before a cold front moves through Friday, bringing with it a 50-60% chance of showers into Saturday.

  Rose Catherine (7th), the Todd Pletcher-trained turf sprinter who won four in a row last year including the $200k Turf Amazon, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the featured $60,000 Nonsuch Bay overnight stakes.
