Belmont Park Horses in Focus for Thursday, October 4

Race 1: Clairvoyant Lady (#4)

  • Is likely to secure the early lead and may be able to control the pace on the front end.
  • Gets some significant class relief after being overmatched against optional claiming foes.
  • Won at this exact level going this distance back in May.

5-1 on ML

Race 2: Hills Pond (#5)

  • Should sit a good stalking trip in a race that does not appear to feature much pace.
  • Has been facing significantly tougher company in his recent starts than the field he meets here.
  • Gets a positive rider switch to Irad Ortiz, Jr.

Race 5: Will Dancer (#1)

  • Got a good education in his debut, as he was shuffled back and had to negotiate traffic.
  • Is bred to stretch-out in distance as a half-brother to turf router Notacatbutallama.
  • Has worked well in company with some talented stablemates in the morning.

3-1 on ML

Race 9: Ballston (#4)

  • Faced a deceptively strong field last time, as winner Agreeable came back to defeat a strong field next time out.
  • Danny Gargan gets a 100 TimeformUS Trainer Rating with horses dropping from maiden special weight to maiden claiming company.
  • Ran competitive speed figures as a 2-year-old and may not yet have shown her true form this year.

6-1 on ML
