Comfort's stock on rise entering Seattle Slew Stakes


ELMONT, N.Y. – When they met two months ago in the State Dinner Stakes here, Touchofstarquality was favored over Comfort but proved no match for that rival, losing by 3 1/2 lengths. On Saturday, when they meet again in the $100,000 Seattle Slew Stakes on the first Saturday of the Belmont Park fall meet, Comfort will be regarded as the horse to beat in the five-horse field set to go 1 1/16 miles over the main track.
