Horses in Focus At Belmont and Santa Anita on Thursday May 12th


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.


Race 4: 

For Later (#4)
Was off very slowly in each of her last two starts–a concern again today.
Was steadied coming to the top of the stretch last time when attempting to weave through traffic.
Extra half-furlong should work to her advantage.
8/1 on ML
Race 8: 
Vulcan’s Forge (#5)
Overcame a four-wide, prolonged move around the far turn at Aqueduct last time.
Possesses by far the best Late Pace rating in the field (106).
Should appreciate the return to Belmont.
6/1 on ML


Race 1:

Diamondinthecenter, the 2 horse:

First-time starter has a Breeding Rating of 90 for this.

She has been training as if she has early speed.

Could be a decent price, since the O’Neill filly will get hammered.

5-2 on ML.
Race 5:

Spirit Rules, the 8 horse:

Pace Projector shows him on a clear early lead in a  race projected to favor speed.

Earned a giant 119 speed figure down this hill last year.

Has been training very well and draws the perfect post, and Aguirre uses his favorite rider.

4-1 on ML.
