Jockey Joel Rosario was hot early on winning 3 out of the first 4 races starting off in race #1 on Stormy’s Song and at nice odds of 9/1.
Trainers Chad Brown and Jeremiah Englehart had 2 winners each on the day. Jeremiah Engelhart has a first timer in the last race by the name of Crawdaddy (Ridden by Luis Saez) who roared up with a late charge from 6th place in the stretch to win the race at 33-1 odds!!!

Beautiful, ideal weather conditions for today’s card; Sunny with a high temperature of 75 degrees forecasted.
Another big odds winner for the first race at Belmont Park today. Riff Raff horse #6 won the first race at 11/1 odds at race time, with a $24.40 win bet.
The largest Win Bet of the day was in Race#4 a Maiden Special at 7 furlongs on dirt. Emancipation in post position #12 and odds of 25/1 comes from behind to win it over the favorite Bluegrass Prevails. It was a $60.50 win for a $2.00 win bet, now that is a nice ROI.
