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.
Security Risk (#3)
Impressive when breaking his maiden here last summer.
Had excuses in subsequent starts against winners: wide in August, wet turf course in October.
Shug McGaughey gets a solid 81 trainer rating with horses coming off layoffs of this type.
12/1 on ML
Had to steady in deep stretch last time when unwisely sent through a narrow opening on the rail.
Gets a positive rider switch to Joel Rosario.
Has run some of his best recent races at this seven furlong distance at Belmont.
20/1 on ML
Irish Actor (#7)
Was taken too far off the pace last time, given too much ground to make up.
Gets a positive rider switch to leading jockey Jose Ortiz.
Linda Rice gets a 92 trainer rating with horses making their second starts off a layoff.
5/1 on ML
