Mike’s Free Selections for Sunday September 21:
Belmont Park Race 1 Md $20,000 (1:05 ET)
- No.3 Path to Power 4-1
- No.2 It’s Easy 3-1
- No.7 Golden Maria 10-1
- No.8 Bella Fachi 5-2
Path to Power made her debut going long on the turf at the $65,000 level and she stalked the early pace while down along the inside and weakened to finish sixth. She cuts back to a dirt sprint here while adding blinkers for the underrated Lisa Lewis barn. Pedigree wise she seems better suited for the main track. She is out of the stakes winner Rare Blend ($657,875). She catches a soft group here.
It’s Easy makes her first start since May for the Adsit barn that is showing a 0 for 12 with runners coming back off a 61-180 day layoff. In her last outing the filly checked in third for a $30,000 tag. She has landed in the money in six of her eight starts without picking up her diploma. Not much else in here to get excited about.
WIN: #1 to win at 9-5 or better.
EX: 1,4 / 1,4,5
TRI: 1 / 2,4,5 / 2,4,5
