Belmont Horses in Focus for Friday, October 18

Race 1: Knockout Punch (#5)

  • Is bred to appreciate more ground than he got to work with in his only other turf start.
  • Actually showed some speed in that turf debut before racing greenly and dropping back.
  • Low-profile connections will ensure that he’s a square price, but trainer Bob Dunham has sent out live runners at this meet.

Race 7: London House (#5)

  • The 113 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned back in February would be good enough to beat this field.
  • Has a right to run faster now with natural maturity, assuming he’s ready off the layoff.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be stalking the pace in a situation favoring runners on or near the lead.
