Belmont Horses in Focus for Saturday, October 26

Race 1: Mandatory (#6)

  • Was green in his debut, racing wide on the turn before hitting his best stride late.
  • Is bred to appreciate added ground as an American Pharaoh-sired half-brother to Grade 1 router I’m a Chatterbox.
  • John Kimmel has been having a strong year with this crop of 2-year-olds.

7-2 on ML


Race 5: Seismic Wave (#4)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting a fast pace and he has the highest TimeformUS Late Pace Rating of 114.
  • May appreciate the slight turnback to a mile after failing to stretch out successfully.
  • Was badly compromised by a slow pace last time in the Hill Prince.

5-1 on ML


Race 8: True Timber (#4)

  • Probably needed his first start back off the layoff in the Kelso last time.
  • Seven furlongs is arguably his best distance, so he should appreciate the slight turnback.
  • Would be an awfully tough foe for Maximum Security if he gets back to his 2018 Cigar Mile form.

8-1 on ML
