Belmont Horses in Focus for Friday, October 4

Race 5: Go Poke the Bear (#7)

  • It was a good sign that Brad Cox claimed this horse back at Saratoga after losing him once before.
  • Ran deceptively well last time when hindered by a slow pace.
  • Kendrick Carmouche figures to have this sluggish runner placed a bit closer to the pace than usual.

3-1 on ML


Race 6: Short Pour (#1)

  • Was much the best last time, as she overcame a poor start and a fast pace to win on the front end.
  • Had significant trouble in her prior 2019 starts, so her overall form is stronger than it appears.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that she could be in front again, this time in a “No Speed” situation.

8-1 on ML


Race 7: Navasha (#2)

  • Was no match for the heavily-touted Indian Pride last time, but was finishing well late.
  • Has been working forwardly since that debut.
  • Is bred to stretch out in distance as a daughter of Giant’s Causeway out of a dam who won routing on turf.

7-2 on ML
