Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday July 15th

Race 3: What a Catch (#4)

Dueled through fast fractions in his debut, finishing far ahead of the other speeds.

Put forth an impressive workout at the two-year-old sale earlier in the spring.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Todd Pletcher is 11 for 29 (38 percent, $2.25 ROI) with second-time starting debut-winning two-year-olds in dirt sprints with John Velazquez riding.

7-2 on ML

Race 6: Abbot (#7)

Was extremely rank with blinkers added in his return at Monmouth last time.

Blinkers are removed today.

His prior turf efforts would make him very tough against this weaker field.

4-1 on ML

Race 10: Lover’s Key (#6)

Gave up her pace advantage last time when rated too strongly on the lead.

Her prior races in Florida were very good, despite getting some eventful rides.

Trainer Reid Nagle gets a 100 Trainer Rating in turf races.
