TimeformUS Belmont Horses in Focus for Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017


Race 7:
Sweet August Lady (#1)

Ran her best race going one turn at Belmont in early summer.
Was too far back over a very firm course after a poor start last time.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Chad Brown is 16 for 45 (36 percent, $2.94 ROI) with horses going from routes to sprints on turf at Belmont.
6-1 on ML

Race 9:
Impact Player  (#1)

Was very game in his debut, dueling through honest fractions before getting run down late.
Is by good turf sire City Zip and out of a dam that has produced two turf winners.
His eye-catching breeze over the synthetic track at Ocala in the spring suggests that turf may be the right surface.
5-2 on ML
