Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday June 25th

Race 1: Lightning Buzz (#3)

Contested a fast pace last time, and put away his early rival before getting passed by closers late.

Should be fitter for his second start back from the layoff.

Has run races in the past that would make him competitive here.

7-2 on ML


Race 2: To Your Health (#5)

Overcame a slow pace last time and was the only horse making up significant ground late.

Appears to be in the best form of his career right now.

Is going out for connections that often get overlooked but are capable of winning here.

20-1 on ML


Race 7: Lover’s Key (#2)

Has significantly improved this spring for barn that gets a 99 Trainer Rating with its turf runners.

Has overcome some badly conceived rides in recent starts, particularly on April 1 and May 29.

Is one of the few horses with speed in a field lacking a confirmed front-runner.

5-1 on ML
