6 Trautman(L) 114 Rodriguez 6-10-4 Contessa 8-1

12 Wind of Bosphorus(L) 120 Saez 7-4-7 Brown 5-2

1a Back Forty(L) 115 Worrie 1-8-5 Jacobson 2-1

7 Broad Rule(L) 120 Alvarado 3-5-7 Adsit 8-1

Street Shark was a clear-cut winner on turf last time and fired half-mile bullet on Thursday. Jacobson entry: Be Bullish drops and owns fast figures and mate Back Forty won last and owns swifter back numbers; potent pairing. Broad Rule is right in the thick of this on best efforts.

7

1 Shopping Spree(L) 120 DeCarlo 4-7-5 Zito 20-1

8 Throckmorton(L) 120 Franco 7-x-x Mettee 3-1

9 Kato(L) 120 Lezcano 8-6-6 Lewis 8-1

Social Affair owns fast late pace figures and compiled eye-catching work slate for first start in 49 days. Sublime could play out as the dominant speed in turf debut. Kato was victimized by rough trip in last start; price will be tempting.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. NY Bred. Purse: $65,000.

15 Pearls for Girls(L) 123 No Rider 6-4-1 Kimmel 12-1

16 What the Frost(L) 119 No Rider 3-5-4 Contessa 6-1

Image of Noon is rested and packs potent late kick on best efforts. One Time Only has finished second in last two starts; continues trend? Henry's Gal is fleet-footed and should be aided by today's shorter trip. Mighty Reward is a last-race winner that's likely to be overlooked in the wagering; don't ignore.

9

11/8 Mile. (Inner Turf). The JOHN HETTINGER. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $125,000.

2 Frosty Bay(L) 120 Franco 4-5-6 Schettino 12-1

9 Princess Mara(L) 116 Alvarado 3-10-3 Quick 15-1

10 Invading Humor(L) 120 Maragh 1-1-1 Levine 4-1

Stock Fund is riding a forward line on the numbers and logged stamina-building, 6-furlong work last week. Princess Mara is speedy, loves Belmont grass and will prove very on an unchallenged lead. Invading Humor has won three in a row and bested top selection by a half-length on Aug. 4; right in the thick of this.

15 Bellamy Way(L) 120 No Rider 5-x-x Cannizzo 4-1

16 False Positive(L1) 113 Rodriguez x-x-x Contessa 5-1

Chief Kitten tallied solid final fraction when second to a repeat winner in debut. Mark My Style made steady rally in debut and could be aided by today's added ground. The Prez displayed improved speed in turf debut; worth long look at long price. Brother O'Connell was nearly five lengths behind top selection in debut but could easily close the gap with anticipated second-out improvement.
