Belmont Horses in Focus for Monday, May 27

Race 1: Nueva York (#10)

  • Has been steadily improving in recent starts and would be dangerous if he transfers his dirt form to turf.
  • Is a full-brother to a turf sprint winner and his second dam was a turf horse.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, David Cannizzo is 5 for 26 (19 percent, $4.86 ROI) with horses trying turf for the first time in sprints.

8-1 on ML


Race 4: Elegant Zip (#4)

  • Got stymied inside at a critical point last time out and might have won had she found a clear path sooner.
  • Should sit a great trip stalking the two speeds, Newly Minted and Cash Offer.
  • Has handled longer distances, but should appreciate the slight turnback to 7 furlongs.

8-1 on ML


Race 9: Bankit (#8)

  • Appeared to dislike the sloppy racetrack he encountered last time and gets on a fast track on Monday.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will get a fast pace to close into.
  • Showed plenty of ability in one-turn races as a 2-year-old, so should appreciate another opportunity to sprint.

10-1 on ML


Race 10: Syndergaard (#2)

  • Should be more forwardly placed as he stretches out in distance and figures to sit a good stalking trip.
  • Found 6 furlongs to be too short for him in each of his last two starts and proved that he can get a mile on Feb. 17.
  • Has continued to attack his workouts with great energy coming into this race.

6-1 on ML
