Belmont Horses in Focus for Friday, September 20

Race 2: Shimmering Moon (#6)

  • Should be fitter in her second start off the layoff.
  • Was stuck down on a dead rail last time at Saratoga.
  • Robert Falcone, Jr. gets a solid 89 TimeformUS Trainer Rating first off the claim.

7-2 on ML


Race 4: Getmotherarose (#8)

  • Kept very good company last time, as the second and fourth place finishers came back to win, improving their speed figures.
  • Has a versatile running style, which should allow her to work out a good stalking trip.
  • Earned both of her career victories over this course and distance.

7-2 on ML


Race 8: Stanhope (#8)

  • Showed good speed in her debut, only getting run down by Cleon Jones, who returned to finish second in a stakes.
  • Has plenty of turf pedigree on the dam’s side, since the dam is a half-sister to turf graded stakes winner Enterprising.
  • Shug McGaughey’s runners tend to benefit from experience.

5-1 on ML
