Belmont Horses in Focus for Thursday, September 19

Race 6: Carthon (#6)

  • Earned a series of speed figures during the winter and sprint at Aqueduct that would make him formidable here.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting he’s fast enough to make the front, and he’s drawn well outside of main speed rival Three to Thirteen.
  • Ran one of his best races when he was coming off a similar layoff in December last year.

5-2 on ML


Race 7: Value Engineering (#10)

  • Has always acted like a horse who would appreciate added ground so the 10 furlongs should be perfect.
  • Overcame some minor traffic trouble in upper stretch last time before bursting through when he got clear.
  • Is finally putting races back-to-back after needing some time between his first few starts.

Race 8: Positive Power (#6)

  • Was finishing up well last time like a horse who should appreciate added ground.
  • Misremembered isn’t a terrible turf influence, winning with 10% of his turf starters overall, and there’s some turf on the dam’s side.
  • Figures to get dismissed at a big price in a race where I just don’t trust any of the favorites.
