Three ways to play Saturday’s all-stakes Pick 4 at Belmont Park

Race 7 on Saturday at Belmont Park, set for a 3:43 p.m. post time, kicks off an all-stakes Pick 4 in New York.

HRN handicapper Jarrod Horak lays out three ways to play it — but first, analyses of the races:

Grade 3 Athenia Stakes (Race 7 – 8.5T)

#5 TIME AND MOTION (6-1) was very good last year but has not been able to get things going in 2017. It appears that Toner finally has her healthy again and she has two bullets in her holster. She reconnects with winning rider Johnny V and should offer value. #7 Off Limits (2-1) fired Exacta shots in her last five and bumped her numbers up nicely in her last two wins. She is razor sharp now. #1 Elysea’s World (5-1) can be dangerous when she gets pace help but her only win in her last 10 starts was a 9f optional claiming score at GP (December 2016). She has placed in four graded turf routes this year.

Grade 3 Turnback the Alarm (Races 8 – 8.5f)

#3 MISS SKY WARRIOR (8-5) was part of a collapsing pace when last seen in the G1 Kentucky Oaks on a wet track and she ended up 8th of 14 that day. She rattled off five straight fast track wins (4 graded scores) before the Oaks and figures tough to deny if she is ready to roll off the bench for Breen. She has four bullets in her holster and Castellano hops aboard the early/pressing type. #5 Birdatthewire (8-1) stretches back out off a layoff and she likes this distance (7-2-2-1). #7 Eskenformoney (3-1) is 1-for-14 with 10 minor awards at this distance. She can get a piece of this or possibly more in her career finale.
