Litfin: How I'd play Belmont on Sunday, June 28


How I’ll play Belmont on Sunday remains a work in progress, depending on the timing of whatever Mother Nature has in store for the Long Island area. At this writing, heavy rain and thunderstorms were forecast as a good bet to pummel the track starting sometime late afternoon or early evening Saturday, possibly lingering into Sunday morning. So it seems as though four scheduled turf races – the second, fourth, eighth, and ninth – are in serious jeopardy, while the main track could wind up a sealed and sloppy quagmire or a harrowed drying-out “good” depending on the timing of things.
