Having noticed the Million Dollar Finish contest is involving the Belmont Oaks Invitational, I decided to try my virtual luck at this event. This is a race for 3YO fillies going 12 furlongs on Belmont Park’s turf course
Top 3 are each of my overlays for the race.
DARING DUCHESS makes big move in class after 2 filly allowance races. She had an 87 Brisnet score in her 3YO debut, later surpassed in her last start with an 89. She might bounce, as the score is a spike up from 78. Already a winner following a stretchout and owns 2 good workouts coming in. Also has a shipping victory, and is waiting the longest of this field to stretch. Love the 20-1 morning line odds.
ITSONLYACTINGDAD has 2 wins and a 2nd in 4 lifetime. Bounced to a 82 after posting a lifetime best 91 prior to that; I’m playing the bounceback angle here. Fastest turn time of the field, 22.8.
My suggested odds: Pine Needles 5/1. Lady Eli, Spanish Queen, Sentiero Italia 22-1. Sharla Rae 29-1. Daring Duchess 1-1. Itsonlyactingbad 7-1.
I’d watch for these overlays to play as win and under public favorites in exactas but probably not exactas to each other unless 2 of them are better than 10-1 nearing post time
