Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, May 4

Race 1: Swiping Dan (#1)

  • Will appreciate the cutback in distance after essentially getting eased going a mile last time.
  • This trainer has done well with limited stock over the past several months.
  • Has run his best races over wet track and there is plenty of rain in the forecast.

Race 4: Lady Montdore (#1)

  • Appreciates some give in the ground, and should encounter yielding or soft going if this race stays on the grass.
  • Could play out as the controlling speed in a race that does not feature any confirmed front-runners.
  • Performs well off layoffs, as she displayed in her win at Saint-Cloud in June 2017, and again at Saratoga last summer.

Race 8: Hot Diggity (#5)

  • Ran well in a reasonably fast race on Oct. 26, closing to be second over this track.
  • Had an excuse when shuffled back in the early going in a race dominated up front on Nov. 30.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jeremiah Englehart is 9 for 23 (39 percent, $3.93 ROI) with a maidens coming off 120 to 240 day layoffs in dirt sprints.
