Greetings racing enthusiasts, and welcome to another scintillating day of racing at the prestigious Belmont Park! It's Friday, June 9, 2023, and our sports handicapper extraordinaire, Ron Raymond, has worked his magic once again to bring you his Win, Place, and Show picks for today's races. He's also revealing his Exacta and Trifecta picks to keep the excitement at an all-time high.
Before we get into the details, let's touch on Raymond's favorite horse racing wagering system, the “Double Dutch” betting system. For those unfamiliar with this approach, it involves wagering on one horse in a race to either win and/or place. This means if your chosen horse finishes second, depending on the odds, you could potentially get your money back. Now that's what we call a smart bet!
