6 Schoolyard Dreams(L) 120 Dominguez 2-4-5 Dutrow, Jr 4-1

Indian Dance tallied swift internal and final figures when making first start in more than a year last time; duly tightened. Hymn Book is fresh and logged very fast numbers in both starts on Belmont soil; big-time danger. Kindergarten Kid could pack potent late kick in dirt debut.

Main Track Only

11 All About Alex(L) 119 Castellano 5-2-7 Galluscio 7-2

Ba Ba's Bunch owns win on Belmont grass and should offer generous ticket in wide-open heat. Little Often Anni regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; very dangerous on the rebound. Check Point drops and returns to turf for Alan Goldberg; right in the thick of this. On dirt: Margaret Smile, Ba Ba's Bunch.5

1x Metrology(L) 121 No Rider 4-2-6 Rodriguez 8-5

The Vin Man makes quick comeback (13 days) after logging deceptively fast final fraction in last; more to give. Virsito is fresh and 1-for-1 on Belmont sod. I've Got Speed is more than good enough on best efforts; short price is the knock. On dirt: W. W. 's Lady's Man, The Vin Man.

2b Bojan(L) 121 No Rider 6-3-2 Pletcher 8-1

Jess Not Jesse returns in a jiffy after front-running score last Friday; pairs up. Ziptronic is another last-race winner that makes quick comeback; very dangerous. Count Catamount is riding a two-race winning streak for Rudy Rodriguez; right in the thick of this. On dirt: Bojan, Happy Bull.8

14 Settle for Medal(L) 118 Castellano 2-3-4 Hennig 6-1

15 Cat Sweep(L) 113 Ortiz, Jr 5-4-1 Terranova,II 5-1

Kells Blues compiled a sharp work slate for trainer (Stidham) that excels with layoff runners; call based on price potential. Best Act was pace and position compromised in last; could easily be the play. Lindell A. C. was a front-running winner in last and could play out as the controlling speed once again. On dirt: Lindell A. C., My Piano Man.9

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $20,000.

1 Sumfun(L) 121 Fragoso 10-11-8 DiPrima 30-1

15 Fastus Cactus(L) 121 Espinoza 2-5-6 Brown 7-2

16 After Shock(L) 121 No Rider 5-6-2 Englehart 6-1

Keechi Bullet tallied solid late pace figure when second to a repeat winner in last; half-mile bullet on Oct. 11 seals the deal. Sly drops after hard-charging second in last; very dangerous. Family Holiday is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Zip Quik owns fast figures on both dirt and turf; must consider. On dirt: No La Hace, Keechi Bullet.Entries -- © 2011 Equibase Company LLC, all rights reserved
