Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, September 7

Race 8: Carlino (#6)

  • Ran a race that makes him competitive here over this course and distance in the 2018 Brooklyn.
  • Is arguably in better form now that he was when he last stretched out to marathon distances.
  • His pace disadvantage may be mitigated over this distance in what is likely to be a bunched field.

10-1 on ML


Race 9: Wonderment (#6)

  • Showed that she possesses this kind of ability when taking down the Group 1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud as a 2-year-old.
  • Has had excuses in some of her disappointing 3-year-old performances.
  • Trainer Nicolas Clement sent out the 2nd and 3rd place finishers in two editions of the Belmont Gold Cup, his only North American starters over the past 5 years.

7-2 on ML


Race 10: Spanish Mission (#9)

  • Has earned Timeform Ratings in his last two starts that stack up very well against this field and might actually make him the horse to beat.
  • Encountered some traffic trouble last time in a race that he probably could have won.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, trainer David Simcock is 4 for 11 (37%, $4.47 ROI) with North American shippers.

3-1 on ML
