Belmont: Muddy & off turf


  After being upgraded from muddy to good early, and then being turned into a sea of slop by a mid-card deluge yesterday, the main track is a harrowed muddy to start Thursday's card.

  All three scheduled turf races are off, beginning with the $60,000 Three Coins Up overnight stakes (3rd), where I Want Revenge - blinkers on - will be favored against four others entered for dirt only, including stablemate Arson Squad.

  So far, outside closers are looking good. The opener went to wide-rallying Wise Choice ($55.50), who improved to 2 for 49 lifetime.
