Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday, June 2

Race 5: Dancingwthdaffodls (#7)

  • Ran better than it appears in her turf starts, especially on Oct. 5 when she got shuffled back early.
  • Has improved her form on dirt for the Edmund Pringle barn and may be able to do better with this surface switch.
  • Gets a significant jockey switch to excellent turf rider Jose Ortiz.

Race 7: Labeq (#9)

  • Proved that turf is his preferred surface last spring, and finally gets back on that surface here.
  • Will appreciate softer company after making his prior turf attempts against extremely tough fields.
  • His last race was one of his best dirt efforts, indicating that he may be in good form.

Race 10: Quiet Out East (#6)

  • Ran very well on turf in his second start, making a strong late run despite going wide against a rail bias.
  • Performed well in his dirt return, indicating that he may have come back as an improved 3-year-old.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Christophe Clement is 6 for 12 (50 percent, $3.11 ROI) with maidens going from dirt to turf second off a layoff.
