Mike’s Free Selections for Sunday May 22:
Belmont Park Race 7 Md Sp Wt (4:41 ET)
- No.7 Numbered 8-5
- No.5 Won Dozen Banks 8-1
- No.6 Henrik Rules 7-2
- No.4 Players Luck 6-1
Numbered makes his debut for the McLaughlin barn that is 20% winners (with a +ROI) with first time starters. The colt is by Bernardini (11% winners with debut runners) out of the stakes winner Seventh Street ($716,000) who has dropped one winner. The colt prepped at Palm Meadows and finds a good spot for his debut here.
Won Dozen Banks caught a muddy track last out where he prompted the early pace from the outside and weakened to finish fourth. Two back at Aqueduct the gelding chased the early pace and was no match for the winner late in a runner up finish. Blinkers are added today and he will be in the mix if he runs back to his effort two back. He is out of a stakes placed Signal Tap mare, this her first foal to race.
WIN: #7 to win at 9-5 or better.
EX: 5,7 / 4,5,6,7
TRI: 5,7 / 4,5,6,7 / 1,4,5,6,7
