Belmont Horse Racing Picks for Saturday 5/20/23


The Belmont Spring/Summer Meet continues on Saturday with 11 races. Post time is 12:30 p.m. ET from Belmont Park. Get in the game with mobile betting on FanDuel Sportsbook.

As always, check the program for scratches and changes, and check the weather and keep an eye on the track conditions with rain in the forecast and a muddy track possible with some races taken off the turf.

(I will reference Equibase's Speed Figure in selected races, which tells you how fast a horse has been running in each of its races -- adjusted for track, distances, and conditions).
