Having landed the Kentucky Derby at a huge price, many horse racing fans will feel that big race win was a fluke. However, Rich Strike will have a chance of dispelling those beliefs by adding this Saturday’s Belmont Stakes to his horse racing CV.
He’s not been seen since, with connections preferring to bypass the Preakness Stakes at Pimilco racecourse last month, so will come here fresh from just over a month off.
The big question mark that will apply to most of the Belmont Stakes runners is the step up to 1m4f – most haven’t tackled this trip before so punters will be guessing to a degree if they will stay the extra yardage.
Looking back at past results and a horses running style can help, plus a quick glance at their pedigree can be helpful too. With regards to Rich Strike, his pedigree suggests staying 1m4f will be suspect, but it was hard to not be taken by his running on win in the Kentucky Derby last time, which indicates another two furlongs here will be right up his street.
He’ll certainly have his doubters, but also his supporters too and with the Kentucky Derby runner-up Epicenter backing up that form to run a close second in the Preakness Stakes this will also give his backers more confidence – 5 of the last 10 Belmont Stakes winners ran in the Kentucky Derby last time out.
Both jockey, Sonny Leon and trainer Eric R Reed, will be looking for their first wins in the Belmont Stakes.
