Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday, June 23

Race 5: Newly Minted (#6)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that she will be the controlling speed in this spot.
  • Is bred to handle turf as a daughter of Central Banker out of a dam who is a half-sister to multiple turf winner Changewilldoyagood.
  • Drilled very well on the turf on June 16, easily outworking her stablemate Blindwillie McTell.

6-5 on ML

Race 7: Bernin’ Thru Gold (#5)

  • Broke his maiden impressively in gate-to-wire fashion at Gulfstream, earning a competitive speed figure.
  • Was unwisely rated off the pace going a distance that may be too far for him last time.
  • Has more ability than is apparent and has a recency edge over the likely favorite.

6-1 on ML

Race 8: Funny Guy (#1)

  • Has pedigree to handle grass as a son of Big Brown out of dam who has produced a turf sprint winner.
  • Would be difficult to beat if he merely transfers his dirt form to the grass.
  • Breezed very well over the turf last week, easily outworking older stablemate All Systems Go.

3-1 on ML
