5/2/2015 14:00 4/30/2015 3:00 BEL Race #4 1 3/8m InTurf Graded Stake

Community Spirit
Owner: Threshold
2015: (557 92 .17)
Jockey: Rice T B
2015: (21 2 .10)

Her 2015 debut was most disappointing after a prior Grade 3 victory. I’m afraid after not firing in those last two she just may have hit a rough patch in her career which she needs to build off of to have any sort of chance.
Running Sevens
Owner: Hambletonian Stable
2015: (940 147 .16)
Jockey: Franco M
2015: (42 2 .05)

The longer the better it seems for Running Sevens who’s only bad performance was from the 9 hole ina tough race. She will be in the mix and could be a reliable choice. Distance suits and that will be what she has to use to her advantage.
Mentioned Honorably
Owner: Mb Stables
2015: (1049 369 .35)
Jockey: Arroyo A S
2015: (101 18 .18)

Your likely favorite always fires and is put in a logical spot here by Mb Stables. You got to love the consistency and all round ability of this filly who looks for 2 wins on the year.
Ms Gummybear
Owner: Knight Time Stables
2015: (19 4 .21)
Jockey: Camacho S Jr
2015: (2 0 .00)

Loves the distance but this will be her first time venturing Belmont Park. She just came up short last time and she won’t get the same length to do what she has to do to finish first. Let’s hope she can be a bit closer to the pace and fire a similar stretch run.
Owner: D J C Racing Stables
2015: (568 85 .15)
Jockey: Velasquez C H
2015: (70 10 .14)

The only mare in the field may be the longest shot on the board but she’s in a hot barn with a jockey who’s turf number are not too shabby. She’s ran in a few overnight stakes but the competition doesn’t compare to what we see here.
