Hand-selected by The TimeformUS team, Horses in Focus stand out on our feature sets, such as pace projector, TimeformUS speed figures, spotlight ratings, trainer ratings, pedigree ratings, etc. Expect to see TimeformUS Horses in Focus on this blog typically every Wednesday-Sunday. If Horses in Focus are available for tracks with a later post-time, they will be added to this post throughout the day.
Saratoga Race 2:
#5 Bustin It
Tipped his hand with solid runner-up finish in open company debut behind a 1/9 favorite.
Toyed with NY-breds when breaking his maiden in a stakes race in his next start.
Drew perfectly on the outside and projects to make the lead in this short field.
2/1 on ML.
Saratoga Race 3:
#10 Barrier to Entry
Cut a fast pace in a very live race in turf debut two starts back.
Endured a brutal trip after getting bumped at the break behind a wire-to-wire winner last time.
Gets a major rider change for this race.
6/1 on ML.
Saratoga Race 10:
#7 So Lonesome
Has improved right along, running his three top figures in his last three races.
Handled dirt just fine early in his career, including a debut win over this track.
Was up against an inside speed bias in his last dirt start.
Has the tactical speed to land the right trip up close, and he’ll be a price.
10/1 on ML
Del Mar Race 8:
Jade With Envy, the 2 horse:
Visually impressive in Poly win.
Probably better on grass.
Trainer gets 90 rating with synthetic-to-turf moves.
6-1 on ML.
Del Mar Race 9:
Goldencents, the 5 horse:
Pace Projector shows him on the early lead in a race favoring speed.
Choked by slow pace in last start.
Training up a storm.
5-2 on ML.
Del Mar Race 10:
Game On Dude, the 5 horse:
Pace Projector puts him on a clear early lead.
Training brilliantly for this.
We think his best as a seven-year-old is still best.
Question is whether he can produce it one more time.
3-1 on ML.
Del Mar Race 11:
Industry Leader, the 1 horse:
Pace Projector shows with nice stalking trip.
Has strong back speed figures.
Goes 3rd off the layoff today and has been training quite forwardly.
9-2 on ML.
