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 8:
#11 T Sizzle
Was best but unlucky in turf debut, when settling for 2nd.
Has to stretch out, but has a three-race foundation under him.
Pace Projector indicates that he has enough speed to land in an up-close tracking trip despite his outside post.
5/1 on ML.
SARATOGA Race 10:
#5 Darling Sky
Ships in to try a Grade 1 for a dangerous trainer.
Impressed in her debut despite racing very greenly.
Gets positive change to a strong rider after ducking in and appearing difficult to handle despite convincing debut win.
She is the TimeformUS Top Play at Saratoga today.
8/1 on ML.
Del Mar Race 1
Here Comes Chloe, the 3 horse:
Broke slowly and took too long finding stride in debut.
Came back to train like a different horse.
Trainer gets rating of 91 with first route and 94 with second start of career.
5-1 on ML.
Del Mar Race 9:
Aventador, the 6 horse:
Semi-competitive in Group 1 in France.
Ran two strong speed figures (103 then 104) in last two starts in France.
May appreciate cut-back in distance.
8-1 on ML.
Del Mar Race 11:
Garnisheed Wages, the 2 horse:
Has competitive speed figures.
Draws a good post for this.
Can run with these at a price if Pedroza puts her in the race early.
12-1 on ML.
