Nick Zito will win the Belmont Stakes again. The two time winner hoist the coveted Test of Champions trophy once again on Saturday but it won't be because of morning line favorite, Ice Box.
It will be because of Fly Down. The son of Mineshaft has the requisite turn of foot in order to blow away the Belmont Stakes field. Ice Box? The horse always finds trouble and I believe he finds trouble again on Saturday. He'll come on but it will be too late. First Dude? He has to be tired after that Preakness run.
I'm predicting that Game On Dude and First Dude go out for the lead, Interactif lies about 2 to 3 lengths behind. Behind Interactif will be Fly Down. As they turn for home, Interactif will take the lead while Game On Dude and First Dude will fall back to the pack.
At that point, Fly Down will kick it into gear to run past Interactif. Ice Box will run on for 2nd while Interactif will hang on for third.
Make sure to play the Pick 4 as the pool is $1 million bucks! Good luck on Belmont Stakes Day!
