Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, October 21st

Race 2: Droselmeyr’s Smile (#7)
Closed well in her debut and earned a competitive speed figure.
Is bred to stretch out in distance as a half-sister to 4 dirt route winners.
The Pace Projector is predicting a fast pace and she should be rallying from off the pace this time.
12-1 on ML

Race 6: Big Gemmy (#3)
Closed powerfully in his maiden win going 7 furlongs at Saratoga two back.
Was too tentatively ridden against a good field in the Iroquois last time.
Should benefit from a contested pace between the two speeds Stoney Bennett and Battle Station.
8-1 on ML

Race 8: Gold for the King (#7)
Will appreciate the turnback in distance after not handling a route in the New York Derby.
Was compromised by a four-wide trip two back at Finger Lakes.
Charlton Baker gets a 98 Trainer Rating with horses coming off layoffs of this type.
12-1 on ML
