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.
Madison Blues (#9)
Saratoga speed figures of 101 and 99 are two of the top numbers in the field.
Taken too far off the pace last time and sustained a very wide trip.
Should show more speed this time; has options from her outside post.
6/1 on ML
Moon Track (#1)
Has more dirt breeding than turf breeding.
Is a closer in a race predicted to feature a fast pace.
Has been done in by outside post positions in recent races; may be in better form than it appears.
15/1 on ML
Overcome a three-wide trip around both turns to break maiden.
Should sit a good trip up close to the pace.
Top speed figure of 82 stacks up well against the favorites; still has upside.
8/1 on ML
