Turf sprints are becoming more and more important in North America. Case in point is Saturday's Jaipur Stakes on the Belmont Stakes undercard that now has Grade 1 status.
This year's edition has drawn a deep field of eight and was a perfect foil for the Betmix Angler online handicapping database.
From a relatively small sample of 6-furlong grass stakes at Belmont Park, we learned that 45% of the winners and an impressive 81% of the top three finishers have ranked first in the Average Last 3 Late Pace handicapping factor. Among the winners are three of last six Jaipur conquerors including the double-digit mutuel winners Undrafted ($11.60) and Disco Partner ($11.60).
Find this race in Betmix Birddog and use the Average Last 3 Late Pace slider to see which horse ranks first in this factor. That’s the Sharp Angles play.
