Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, June 1

Race 1: Real Money (#4)

  • The 112 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned last time out is the highest in the field.
  • Should appreciate the slight cutback in distance to 6 furlongs.
  • Strong workout last week suggests he’s coming into this race in top form.

3-1 on ML

Race 3: Ekhtibaar (#4)

  • Was placed in very tough spots in his last two starts and will appreciate the class relief.
  • His recent dirt speed figures make him a very logical contender.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Ray Handal is 10 for 34 (29%, $2.45 ROI) with horses going from turf to dirt.

Race 8: Clint Maroon (#5)

  • The 113 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned last time out is tied for the highest in the field.
  • Will appreciate a little give in the ground after Thursday’s rains.
  • May play out as the controlling speed in a race that lacks other confirmed front-runners.

    I think the best race to watch at Belmont today, but not bet because of the odds is Race 4 with Highest Honors.As close to a mortal lock as you’ll ever get ! 2nd time out for Chad Brown. 1st time was at Keenland in a sprint on the mud, got shut off on the rail and rallied to a 90 beyer, but lost. Down the road this pony will be a monster ! Going today in a 1 1/16
