Nick Shiambouros is back with two selections from Belmont Park on Vosburgh day...
"He is one of the most consistent sprinters in the country and has been working brilliantly ahead of this assignment"
Time to push the Button
Race 6 20:36 Belmont Park - Hot Button
Hot Button will appreciate the drop-in class in this $40k maiden claimer on the turf.
This filly caught the eye on debut when finishing second in a $75k maiden claimer at Saratoga last month. She held every chance in the straight but came up short in the closing stages. This was a promising effort and trainer Brad Cox boasts an impressive 26% strike rate with second time starters. Cox is a master at placing horses and is having a great year. This appears to be the perfect spot for her and should be backed at her Morning Line price of 7/24.5.
Firenze Fire to torch rivals
Race 9 22:14 Belmont Park - Firenze Fire
Firenze Fire can get back to winning ways in this mouthwatering Grade 2 on the main track.
This smart performer finished down the field in the Grade 1 Forego at Saratoga last month. He chased the leaders in the driving rain, but weakened out of contention in the straight. The return to six furlongs will suit, and is a four-time winner over this course.
He is one of the most consistent sprinters in the country and has been working brilliantly ahead of this assignment. I have backed him at his current price of 4/15.2 on the exchange.
