ELMONT, N.Y. - Horse players chasing the $63,528 pick six carryover here on Wednesday likely will rely heavily on a pair of Belmont Park-loving horses who figure prominently in two of the sequence's six races.

, 5 for 9 at Belmont with two runner-up finishes to Ghostzapper in graded stakes, heads a competitive seven-horse field in the featured $58,000 classified allowance race at six furlongs. One race earlier, Fleet Indian - 3 for 3 at Belmont - drops into allowance company after trying the Grade 1 Alabama.

On June 18, Aggadan rolled in an allowance race here at seven furlongs, coming from just off the pace to beat Key Deputy by 2 3/4 lengths. On July 4, Aggadan finished second behind Ghostzapper in the Grade 2 Tom Fool Handicap while racing on the lead.

Trainer Richard Dutrow said he didn't run Aggadan at Saratoga because he couldn't find the right spot. Dutrow, who went 7-5-2 from 15 starters at Monmouth, Saratoga, Philadelphia Park, Delaware Park, and Belmont last week, believes this could be the right spot for Aggadan.

"He's ready,'' Dutrow said. "He's going to run his race. I didn't think this race would come up this tough, but he's running on his track.''

is 3 for 6 here, including a 2 3/4-length victory on May 20, the last time he ran in a stakes. My Cousin Matt's closing style should benefit him in a race with plenty of speed.

Mike's Classic figures to face pressure up front from Bishop Court Hill and Key Deputy. Also, Mike's Classic picks up 11 pounds off his last race.

Fleet Indian is likely to be a single on most smaller pick six tickets in the seventh, a second-level allowance race at 1 1/16 miles. She reeled off three consecutive statebred wins before beating open company here on July 15.

In the Grade 1 Alabama, trainer Jimmy Toner equipped with stickers, equipment designed to help a horse better handle wet surfaces. Toner said Fleet Indian sliced the inside of her left front foot with one of those stickers while finishing 14 1/4 lengths behind Society Selection.

"It was like I took a razor blade to it, and it filled up like a golf ball,'' Toner said. "I hope we can get her back on track again.''

The July 15 race won by Fleet Indian produced next-out winners Mambo Bell and Swinging, both of whom try Fleet Indian again on Wednesday.
