Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, May 18

Race 7: Dynamite Kitten (#7)

  • Traveled 111 more feet than the winner last time, according to Trakus, as she bolted on both turns.
  • Should appreciate the more gradual bends and one-turn configuration at Belmont.
  • Fits well against this field off her last effort and should be able to handle the rise in class.

9-2 on ML

Race 10: Archumybaby (#11)

  • Looks far more logical in a field that will be depleted by scratches after some of these raced on Friday.
  • Linda Rice gets a 100 TimeformUS Trainer Rating first off the claim.
  • Was badly compromised by a poor ride two back and then was over-aggressively rated off a slow pace last time.

8-1 on ML

Race 11: Stillwater Cove (#3)

  • Ran a remarkable race to be second in her return, overcoming a fast pace in a race that fell apart.
  • Showed great promise on turf as a 2-year-old, only failing in some very ambitious spots.
  • Wesley Ward is very dangerous with horses he ships to the NYRA circuit at this time of year.

5-2 on ML
