Belmont Horses in Focus for Friday, September 21

Race 5: Cilantro (#2)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting a situation favoring horses on or near the lead, and she is a potential front-runner.
  • Todd Pletcher does very well with horses stretching out to routes for the first time on dirt.
  • Has plenty of stamina breeding on the bottom side of her pedigree.

Race 7: Miles of Humor (#6)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting a fast pace, which should aid this runner as the blinkers come off.
  • Ran better than it appears last time as he made the first move into a pace that fell apart.
  • His recent efforts have been strong, and a solid recent string of workouts suggests that he’s holding his form well.

Race 9: Risp (#1)

  • Was heavily touted prior to his debut and was bet down to favoritism for a barn that rarely wins first time out.
  • Traveled 42 feet farther than winner Poppy’s Destiny last time, according to Trakus, and lost by only a half-length.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will get a fast pace to close into.
