Belmont: Sloppy & good; accelerated post times

Email

  The main track is sloppy and the turf courses are labeled "good" for the second of three twilight Friday programs, with first post at 3:00 p.m. Eastern.

  The 4th, 6th & 7th races have been taken off the turf; the 6th race gets a distance change to 1 1/8 miles.

  The 8th & 9th races remain on the turf for now, but more rain is in the forecast. As a result, post times have been accelerated as follows: 2nd - 3:20; 3rd - 3:52; 4th - 4:18; 5th - 4:44; 6th - 5:12; 7th - 5:48; 8th - 6:08; 9th - 6:36.
