Belmont - Race 3
#3 SLIPSTREAM (7/2 ml)
2yo firster for Clement had worked heads-up several times in a row with KODAMA prior to that one's second-place debut on May 28, then again before her next start on June 18, where she went off as the 8/5 favorite and led much of the way before fading to 4th. Sandwiched between those drills was was another heads-up work with LITTLE DUTCH GIRL, an older 3yo filly who won her only start last November. Obviously Clement is always dangerous in these maiden turf sprints, and this one appears well-meant. Should run well.
