Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday, September 29

Race 2: Coolboy (#7)

  • Is the only experienced horse with speed in a race full of plodders who will be shorter prices.
  • Has earned legitimate TimeformUS Speed Figures in all of his recent dirt starts while facing tougher fields.
  • Should appreciate the slight turnback in distance.

12-1 on ML


Race 6: Lough Na Mona (#6)

  • Hasn’t been finishing off her route races, so perhaps the turnback will work out for her.
  • A repeat of the 93 TimeformUS Speed Figure that she earned on April 5 would make her tough to beat here.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Christophe Clement is 8 for 20 (40%, $2.44 ROI) with maidens going from routes to sprints on turf at NYRA.

5-1 on ML


Race 8: English Breeze (#5)

  • Was visually impressive when rank and difficult to control in her debut.
  • Got stymied in traffic last time while the two fillies who finished ahead of her got clear, outside runs.
  • Still has room for improvement and she’s already shown she’s fast enough to win this race.

5-1 on ML


Race 9: English Humor (#3)

  • Has been facing significantly better company in his two prior starts.
  • Ran a lot better than it seems two back in a race out of which many have returned to improve.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Mark Hennig is 6 for 21 (29%, $6.09 ROI) with horses dropping from maiden special weight to maiden claiming races on the turf.

8-1 on ML
