Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, September 28

Race 3: Swamp Rat (#7)

  • Should get some pace to close into with a few key speeds signed on.
  • Did not get ideal trips in his last two races when a bit too rank with blinkers, which come off here.
  • May really appreciate this turnback to a sprint given that he won his debut going 6 furlongs.

3-1 on ML

Race 9: Structor (#7)

  • Came home in swift closing fractions to win his debut stylishly.
  • The 93 TimeformUS Speed Figure he earned first time out makes him very competitive with rivals exiting stakes.
  • Has worked well in company with older stablemate Digital Age in recent weeks.

5-2 on ML

Race 10: Vino Rosso (#3)

  • Ten furlongs is arguably his best distance, and he showed that in the Gold Cup two back.
  • Never seemed comfortable in the Whitney last time when having to hustled throughout.
  • Todd Pletcher takes the blinkers off, and this horse has worked very well without them in recent weeks.

7-2 on ML
