Belmont Park Horses in Focus for Thursday, October 18

Race 2: Caoimhe (#1)

  • Finds herself in an unusually weak race for this level.
  • Ran a string of competitive speed figures going shorter earlier this summer and will appreciate turning back to a sprint.
  • Eric Cancel seems to do well when riding closers in cheap races.

12-1 on ML


Race 8: Heavy Meddle (#2)

  • Was very wide over a surface that he doesn’t particularly care for last time.
  • Ran deceptively well two back when he made a premature move into a fast pace before getting closed down.
  • Catches some potentially vulnerable rivals after having faced tougher fields at this level.

5-1 on ML


Race 9: Major Force (#1)

  • Ran some strong races for the prior barn at Belmont Park, overcoming very slow paces to win on May 26 and June 22.
  • His last effort was better than it seems, as he finished ahead of War Stroll who returned to beat today’s rival Expected Ruler.
  • It’s a good sign that Javier Castellano keeps the mount despite the barn change.

12-1 on ML​
