Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday, April 28

Race 4: Financial System (#1)

  • Chad Brown has outstanding statistics with horses coming off layoffs in turf routes.
  • Progressed nicely through his conditions last year, proving his class against stablemate Prognostication at Saratoga.
  • May have the edge if this race turns into a sprint to the wire.

8-5 on ML

Race 7: Spice Road (#3)

  • Put in a remarkable stretch run last time, running his final eighth of a mile in 11.80 seconds.
  • Is bred to be a nice colt as a full-brother to Grade 2 Nashua winner Avery Island.
  • Kiaran McLaughlin gets a 94 TimeformUS Trainer Rating second time out, much better than his 56 rating with firsters.

5-2 on ML

Race 9: Fear No Evil (#7)

  • Arguably ran just as well as likely favorite Fire Key with slightly tougher trips in the Sensible Lady and Floral Park last fall.
  • Don’t hold Gulfstream loss against her, since she’s not as effective going 5 furlongs.
  • Appreciates give in the ground and the turf course took plenty of rain on Friday night.

6-1 on ML
