Horse racing on Saturday at Belmont Park includes the Grade 1 $300,000 Garden City Handicap.
Gozzip Girl will seek her third straight win and should be the horse betting favorite. Here is a look at the horse betting field for the Garden City Handicap.
Horse racing has Gozzip Girl a grass specialist as she has won four of her past five starts, including the American Oaks Invitational Stakes. Her one loss in horse betting recently was a second by a neck to Hooh Why in the Ashland Stakes and that was on polytrack.
Gozzip Girl is trained by Tom Albertrani and won the American Oaks by 3 1/4 lengths in horse racing. The horse is using this race and possibly the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland in preparation for the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf on November 6th. Most of the attention in the female ranks has gone to Rachel Alexandra, and deservedly so, but Gozzip Girl is a horse to watch.
One of the horse racing contenders to Gozzip Girl could be Maram who won last year’s Juvenile Fillies Turf. The horse has been out with knee issues but came back and won nicely in the John Hettinger Stakes last month. The problem is that Maram still has foot issues. The horse could be scratched so the horse racing field bears watching.
Two other contenders in horse racing for the Garden City are Shared Account and Keertana who finished first and second last month in horse racing in the Lake Placid Stakes at Saratoga.
The horse racing field for the Garden City has Gozzip Girl on the rail with Kent Desormeaux in the irons. Katara is starting in post position #2 with Javier Castellano. Don’t Forget Gil is in post three in horse racing with Julien Leparoux. Miss World starts from post four with Garrett Gomez while Many Kisses is in the 5th post with Michael Luzzi. Shared Account is in post six with Ramon Dominguez in this horse racing event. Pull Dancer starts from post 7 with Alan Garcia. Maram starts in post 8 with Jose Lezcano and Keertana starts from the outside in horse racing with jockey Eibar Coa.
Horse betting on Saturday from Belmont Park should be exciting with the Garden City Handicap and the Ruffian which takes place earlier in the day at the track.
