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.
Queens Tiara (#5)
Lone dirt race is better than it appears, since she was wide chasing a fast pace.
Handled a route on turf last time; should appreciate distance.
Appears to be on the upswing; should offer value.
6/1 on ML
Drops into a much easier spot.
Bred to appreciate added distance.
Kiaran McLaughlin gets a 100 trainer rating with second-time starters as well as with horses getting Lasix for the first time.
4/1 on ML
Illybilly Boy, the 4 horse:
Pace Projector shows him on the early lead.
Has run his race in routes.
His best speed figures are not that far off those of the favorites.
12-1 on ML.
Spread the Joy, the 1 horse:
Had a difficult trip at Del Mar.
Still ran decent speed figure of 80.
Facing easier here and has trained well enough.
6-1 on ML.
