Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, June 29

Race 1: Red Right Hand (#4)

  • Race wide against a strong rail bias on May 19, and still stayed on well for second.
  • Was compromised by a fast pace when he made his first start off the layoff at Keeneland in April.
  • Showed that he was capable of better when earning a 105 TimeformUS Speed Figure in the spring of 2018.

Race 3: Worth a Shot (#2)

  • Is bred to move forward on turf as a full-brother to turf graded stakes winner Voodoo Song.
  • Was very green in his debut and should have benefited from the time away.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Linda Rice is 13 for 37 (35 percent, $3.33 ROI) with second time starting maidens adding blinkers for the first time.

Race 6: Performer (#5)

  • Ran well to be third in his debut, staying on late in a race dominated up front.
  • Is bred to be a nice horse out of the graded stakes-placed dam Protesting.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Shug McGaughey is 6 for 29 (21 percent, $2.08 ROI) with second time starting maidens getting Lasix for the first time.
