Belmont Park Horses in Focus for Sunday, October 14th

Race 1: American Rule (#6)

Seemed to improve last time for Gary Contessa, who has been enjoying a fantastic Belmont meet.

The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be forwardly placed in a race that doesn’t feature much quality speed.

Is a half-brother to talented turf horse Markitoff and his dam is a half-sister to 4 turf stakes winners.

6-1 on ML

Race 7: Byself (#1)

Did not get an ideal trip last time as she got shuffled back early and raced out of position through the first quarter mile.

Projects to sit a good stalking trip just in behind likely speed Noble Freud.

Is getting some subtle class relief after facing tougher rivals in her last two starts at this level.

2-1 on ML

Race 8: Just Howard (#8)

Handles wet turf courses very well.

Possesses the tactical speed to work out the right trip sitting just off Hello Don Julio.

Proved that he belongs here when finishing a close fifth in the Arlington Handicap earlier this year.

6-1 on ML​
