6th-Belmont, $90,000, Msw, 6-26, 3yo/up, 6 1/2f, 1:17.35, ft, 5 3/4 lengths.

ACCRETIVE (g, 3, Practical Joke–Mallory Street {SP, $111,837}, by Street Sense), bet hard for this belated unveiling Sunday at Belmont, ran to the money with a dominant victory despite covering significantly much more ground than all of his rivals. Displaying a shark worktab from Chad Brown's auxiliary base at Monmouth, capped by a bullet five furlongs in 1:00 2/5 (1/7) June 17, the gelding was favored throughout the wagering before breaking as the 5-4 chalk. Settling in fifth behind a :22.54 quarter, the dark bay advanced menacingly while four to five wide on the turn, swept to the front just inside the five-sixteenths pole and widened down the lane en route to a sharp 5 3/4-length triumph. Fellow firster Happy Bob (Runhappy) was second best. From the female family of blue hen mare and MGSW/GISP Justwhistledixie (Dixie Union), the winner has a yearling half-sister by Liam's Map. Sales History: $180,000 Ylg '20 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
