Belmont: Muddy & good; $144k pick-6 carryover


  After overnight rain and sporadic showers this morning, the main track is muddy and sealed and the turf courses are labeled good for a 13-race Belmont Stakes Day program.

  The $1 million guaranteed pick-6 has a $144,003 head-start, thanks to a double carryover. The all-stakes sequence begins with race 6, the Acorn Stakes, at 2:34 p.m. Eastern.

  There is also a $1 million guaranteed pick-4 that begins with race 8, the Woody Stephens Stakes, at 3:59 p.m.

  Both of the $1 million guaranteed multi-race exotics conclude with race 11, the Belmont Stakes, at 6:35 p.m.

  Stakes scratches as of 11:10 a.m.:

  True North Handicap (7th race) - Rule by Night; Frazil

  Woody Stephens (8th race) - Bold Warrior

  Manhattan Handicap (10th race) - Wishful Tomcat
