Make Music For Me Race Info:

Owner(s): Ellen Johnson and Peter O. Johnson

Trainer: Alexis Barba

Jockey: Joel Rosario

Post Position: No. 4

Updated Odds:

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BroburySports.com, Make Music For Me opened at 8/1 to win, but his odds have since dropped slightly to 9/1.

Recent Race History:

Make Music For Me is coming off a fourth place finish at the Kentucky Derby. Before that outing, he finished sixth at the G1 Blue Grass behind, among others, fellow Belmont Stakes contenders Stately Victor and First Dude. He won his only other outing this year, which was at Pasadena on March 6.

Betting Analysis:

We don’t think Make Music For Me wins today, but can he finish in the money? Certainly. He finished in the money three times last year in graded stakes behind Lookin at Lucky, who just won the Preakness. But the key for Make Music For Me is for the pace to be set fast early because he’s a closer. If the pace is legit, he’s going to have a tough time beating out some of the top competitors today. Still, we think he represents a little bit of value at 9/1, especially after his strong performance in the Kentucky Derby as a 30/1 long shot.
