Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday, September 8

Race 5: Brilliant Brooks (#2)

  • Found himself in a very difficult race in his debut, as both horses who finished ahead of him may be stakes-bound.
  • All 3 of the dam’s wins came on the turf, so he’s bred to handle the surface switch.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jeremiah Englehart is 4 for 19 (21%, $3.65 ROI) with second time starting maidens trying turf for the first time.

Race 7: Fiftyshays Ofgreen (#2)

  • John Servis tends to send live runners to the NYRA circuit.
  • Is bred to handle longer distances, since her dam is a full-sister to multiple G1-winning router Composure.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, John Servis is 10 for 27 (37%, $3.57 ROI) going from turf to dirt routes with maidens.

10-1 on ML


Race 8: Neverland Rock (#7)

  • Comes into this race in the best form of his career, which is not the case for some of his rivals.
  • Defeated two of his main competitors when second behind the talented Archidust last time.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be stalking a pace that is expected to favor runners on or near the lead.

7-2 on ML
