With races 1 and 5 off the turf and an expected heavy favorite in the fourth, let's avoid the early part of an otherwise very strong New York-bred showcase card on Memorial Day at Belmont. The late pick four (races 7-10) is a tough sequence, and there are a couple of interesting prices in there that I want to get into my play.

Bernier: How I'll play Santa Anita on Saturday, May 27

Saturday’s pick five at Santa Anita features two graded stakes on turf – the Daytona going down the hill and the Gamely going nine furlongs. Each race figures to have a rather heavy favorite. I’m going to lean on one of them and fade the other. Here’s how I’ll approach the pick five.
