Belmont Horses in Focus for Friday, May 17

Race 1: Dillon Rocks (#4)

  • The 106 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned two back is the highest number in this field.
  • Was compromised by getting involved in a fast pace over a very taxing yielding turf course last time.
  • Should appreciate the drop in class after facing nothing but maiden special weight company in his prior starts.

8-1 on ML

Race 4: Steelersfanforlife (#1)

  • Ran very well in his first start off the claim for this barn last September, earning an impressive 108 TimeformUS Speed Figure.
  • Had a major excuse in his only other turf start for these connections on Oct. 5, racing wide against a rail bias after breaking slowly.
  • Won over this course when coming off a similar layoff last summer.

12-1 on ML

Race 5: Candygram (#6)

  • The 118 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned for that most recent victory is the highest number in this field.
  • Ran deceptively well in his first two starts of the year at Gulfstream with difficult trips.
  • Should appreciate the slight turnback to a mile after going two turns last time.

5-2 on ML
