Belmont: Rain in the forecast; post times accelerated; 9th off turf

  The 9th race, the final leg of a pick-6 with a three-day carryover of $930,495, has been taken off the turf.

  Races 3,4,6 & 7 remain on the turf.

  The pick-6 begins with race 4, with a revised post time of 2:22 p.m. Eastern.

  Good luck.
