Friday's 8th race (4:34pm ET) from Belmont Park is an Optional Claiming event for fillies and mares traveling seven panels on the main track.
#7 Hard Life (7-2) could finish full of run at this shorter trip. She earned improved numbers without winning in both starts for Dutrow and exits a wide 3rd as the beaten favorite in the local slop. Dutrow excels with the route/sprint move and Dominguez does fine work with this outfit.
#6 Ullapool (8-5) is an obvious wire job threat exiting a big fig romp off the shelf vs. 3yo filly $25k claimers May 24. Kenneally is 0-for-5 first off the claim and she faces older and has never run two alike. I'll try to beat the all or nothing sort.
$12 to win, $18 to place #7
