Belmont Horses in Focus for Monday, October 14

Race 2: Vip Nation (#8)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that she could be on the lead in a No Speed scenario.
  • Runs her best races from the front end, and Kendrick Carmouche is sure to be sending her in this spot.
  • Has earned some of the highest TimeformUS Speed Figures on turf out of anyone in this field.

Race 6: So Gracious (#4)

  • Ran very well going a sprint distance in her turf debut at Saratoga.
  • Was compromised by a tangled start going a distance that was too far for her last time.
  • This 7-furlong distance should be perfect for her, whereas her two main rivals may prefer either shorter or longer trips.

6-1 on ML


Race 8: Glorious Empire (#2)

  • Proved that he doesn’t necessarily require marathon distances to be effective in the Fort Lauderdale last year.
  • Should have gotten needed fitness out of his return, in which he chased a very fast pace.
  • Is the most naturally talented runner in this field when he’s in top form.

9-2 on ML
