Belmont Park Horses in Focus for Saturday, October 13

Race 3: Bernardino (#6)

  • Had worked well prior to his debut and ran better than his final finishing position suggests.
  • Despite being up against a slow pace, he ran the fastest final quarter mile of all in his debut after getting held up early.
  • Is bred to be a decent turf horse as a half-brother to turf winners Manofffire and Given Fire.

Race 8: Fear No Evil (#11)

  • Is in the best form of her career right now after showing improvement through the summer months.
  • May have been best last time after racing closer to the pace than the top two and getting surprised by the winner’s early move.
  • Handles give in the ground and has run well at Belmont in the past.

Race 9: Victorine (#8)

  • The TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting that she will get a fast pace to close into.
  • Ran better than it appears in the Sands Point after making a wide, uncovered move into contention on the far turn.
  • Switches into the hot Christophe Clement barn and adds Lasix for the first time.

6-1 on ML​
