Golden Glider Prediction and Pick
Golden Glider has a very determined trainer looking for his second Belmont Stakes victory. With an Equibase Speed Figure of 99, Golden Glider has 20-1 odds for Belmont victory. On May 13, 2022, Davis rode his 1,000th career winner, winning aboard Heels Together at Belmont Park. A 20/1 underdog, this chestnut coal out of Ghostzapper and Golden Scarf (by Orientate) has the perfect background to may a punter’s wishes become a reality. He has performed just admirably enough to make it into the competition but not impetuous enough to make him anybody’s favorite. At those odds, he’s worth at least a value show ticket, although a win slip could be much more profitable.
