Watchmaker: Belmont pick five play for Saturday, Sept. 20


At the risk of sounding like a broken record (hey, vinyl is hip these days, incredibly), the New York Racing Association made the late part of Saturday’s card at Belmont difficult by slotting 2-year-old maiden special weight races as the last two races of the 10-race program. Seven of the 11 in the ninth race are first-time starters, and five of the 10 in the body of the 10th race are firsters.
