Belmont Park, Chad Brown, Eddie Castro, Gulfstream Park, Horse racing, John Velazquez, Marcial Navarro, Peter Walder

Belmont and Gulfstream opinions for Wednesday, July 1


Race 4: #8 Mohawk Lily (4-1) ****

Was favored last time, but finished fourth. Comes back after pressing the pace, jockey John Velazquez should have a better feel here.


Race 8: #2 Regardez (3-1)

Was favored in U.S. debut, but finished fourth and now comes back for trainer Chad Brown. Looks like wants to come from just off pace and should like the added distance.



Race 2: #1 Palatine Hill (5-2)

Trainer Marcial Navarro has been on fire lately and claimed this gelding from Peter Walder. Navarro is 29% first off the claim and is 3-for-5 with jockey Eddie Castro.


Race 3: #6 Balada (4-1)

This 3-year-old filly comes out of a key race at Gulfstream Park, which has produced four winners.
