Belmont Horses in Focus for Friday, September 27

Race 2: Bucked Tooth (#2)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the lead in a “No Speed” situation, yet this horse is a front-runner who can take advantage.
  • Throw out his turf performance last time since that’s just not his preferred surface.
  • Gets a positive rider switch to Kendrick Carmouche, who can nurse him along on the front end.

Race 5: King’s Honor (#6)

  • Is coming out of a race that may be stronger than the final time indicates.
  • Has a pedigree that suggests that shorter distances may be in his wheelhouse.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jonathan Thomas is 12 for 24 (50%, $3.90 ROI) with maiden second time starters on the turf over 5 years.

Race 7: Miss Mystique (#2)

  • Is likely to make the front here as long as she breaks cleanly, something she didn’t do two back.
  • Kendrick Carmouche has ridden her well, since he’s made use of her early speed.
  • Defeated the likely favorite, Mentality, going this distance last November.

5-1 on ML
