Belmont Park Horses in Focus for Thursday, May 17th

Race 5: Very Very Stella (#5)

Was hindered by an extremely slow pace last time (indicated by blue color-coded pace figures in PPs).
Gets a needed drop in class.
Has run well over wet tracks in the past and there’s rain in the forecast.
6-1 on ML

Race 7: Sophie N (#5)

Was slowly away from the gate and sluggish in her debut.
Drops out of an open maiden race into New York-bred company for her second start.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Corby Caiazzo is 5 for 17 ($4.96 ROI) with maidens going from sprints to routes on the dirt.
6-1 on ML

Race 8: Mo Flash (#9)

Had significant trouble in a few of her turf starts, including undocumented traffic in the stretch most recently on Nov. 24.
Has improved since she last had an opportunity to race on turf.
Figures to get an honest pace to close into given that a few of her key rivals possess early speed.
10-1 on ML​
