The Dancin Renee Stakes will take place as Race 8 of a scheduled 10-race card going to post at 4:40 pm (ET). Six horses will be running for the $100,000 purse. This race is restricted to fillies and mares four years old and up and will be run on the main dirt surface. The distance for the Dancin Renee Stakes will be 6 furlongs.
The weather for this day’s events looks perfectly sunny and in the mid-seventies. Typical running styles that win over this track in recent history are front runners and those who can stay close to the pace.
Betting Preview: (1) Fierce Lady
Their recent race history suggests an impressive allowance win first off the layoff may make this one live come Saturday. Jockey Luis Saez is winning at 11% for the meet, and Fierce Lady’s trainer, Brittany Russell, is winning at 12%. Their running style is that of a pacer or a stalker. Workout times are average but with four races under her belt, never finishing out of the money at Belmont, consider this one as a mid-longshot come race day.
Betting Preview: (2) Eloquent Speaker
Their recent race history suggests back-to-back allowance wins in February and March, followed by a disappointing trip against a higher level in April, makes me wonder if this horse has the goods to hang with this group. Jockey Manny Franco is winning at 16% while trainer Tony Dutrow is winning at 20%. Their running style is that of a stalker, and she is 1 for 1 at Belmont, but something tells me another big step up in class isn’t what is warranted.
Betting Preview: (3) Good Credence
Their recent race history suggests a second in a stake here at Belmont, and six of seven in the money finishes here puts Good Credence as a likely contender based on class. Jockey Junior Alvarado is winning at 13% for the meet. Their running style is yet another pacer. Workout times are okay, but I just don’t see a repeat performance of her last race come this Saturday.
Betting Preview: (4) Ruvies in Time
Their recent race history suggests a lower stake win at Aqueduct, and some impressive wins last season give this one a shot. Jockey Joel Rosario is winning at 21% for the meet, and this horse’s early front speed could help her steal it from the front end.
Betting Preview: (5) Sadie Lady
Their recent race history suggests stake wins and a place last out put this one as the favorite coming in. Jockey Jose Ortiz is winning at 21% while trainer Rob Atras is winning at 20%. Their running style is that of a front runner, and the last workout time was solid. If Jose Ortiz gets loose on the front end, this one could be over in just a few early strides.
Betting Preview: (6) Espresso Shot
Their recent race history suggests multiple stakes wins followed by a disappointing last out make this one tough to place come Saturday. Sure, stakes wins were impressive, but jockey Javier Castellano is winning at only 9%. Another stalker, who can close into a brisk pace but consider me fading this one a stern warning. Could win going away, who knows.
