Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, October 19

Race 4: Gucci Factor (#6)

  • Blew the start last time when spotting the field by about 6 lengths, yet actually ran well after that.
  • Should appreciate the slight cutback in distance to 1 1/16 miles.
  • Has the tactical speed to get the jump on the closers in what could be a paceless race.

7-2 on ML


Race 6: Build to Suit (#1)

  • Ran extremely well in the Morrissey two back when he was probably best after a less-than-ideal trip.
  • Was visually impressive when easily beating a solid open company field last time.
  • Should get a head start on main rival Celtic Chaos this time, provided he breaks cleanly.

2-1 on ML


Race 7: Satisfy (#7)

  • Earned a 116 TimeformUS Speed Figure in this race last year, and a repeat of that number would make her tough to beat.
  • Never really had a chance to rally in her return at Monmouth as she got held up in traffic on the turn.
  • Should be fitter for her second start off the layoff.

3-1 on ML


Race 10: Midnight Disguise (#9)

  • There is a fair amount of speed in this race, so she should get an honest pace to close into.
  • A one-turn mile is arguably her best distance, and she earned a competitive speed figure going this trip two back.
  • Joel Rosario should be a good fit for this late-running filly.

7-2 on ML
