Belmont Horses in Focus for Wednesday, September 18

Race 5: Klickitat (#5)

  • Jimmy Jerkens gets a 94 TimeformUS Trainer Rating when adding Lasix for the first time.
  • Ran well going this distance two back when greenly running in spots.
  • May appreciate the move to Belmont Park’s Widener course since he appeared to have trouble cornering at Saratoga.

7-2 on ML


Race 6: Riken (#1)

  • Has always been bred to excel on turf as a half-brother to 2 solid turf winners.
  • Was off slowly and too far back in the early going of his only turf start back in April.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he should sit a good trip close to the pace in a situation favoring those near the lead.

12-1 on ML
