Horse Andrew Beyer's Analysis Odds

1. Street Life

Trainer: Chad Brown
Jockey: Jose Lezcano
Probably not good enough, but fast finisher does have good bloodlines for the Belmont distance.


BSF: 93

2. Unstoppable U

Trainer: Ken McPeek
Jockey: Junior Alvarado
Unbeaten in two career starts--but two career starts aren't sufficient preparation for the Belmont.


BSF: 82

3. Union Rags

Trainer: Michael Matz
Jockey: John Velazquez
After trouble-filled trips in Florida and Kentucky Derbies, talented colt can only do better with John Velazquez replacing Julien Leparoux.


BSF: 95

4. Atigun

Trainer: Ken McPeek
Jockey: Julien Leparoux
Never won a stakes and appears overmatched, but trainer pulled a 70-to-1 Belmont shocker in '02 with Sarava.


BSF: 89

5. Dullahan

Trainer: Dale Romans
Jockey: Javier Castellano
Third-place Derby finisher worked four furlongs in an eye-catching 45.97 seconds at Belmont. "When he works like that, he runs big," trainer Dale Romans said.


BSF: 98

6. Ravelo's Boy

Trainer: Manuel Azpurua
Jockey: Alex Solis
Hasn't raced since 5th-place finish in Tampa Bay Derby March 10 and doesn't belong in this race.


BSF: 80

7. Five Sixteen

Trainer: Dominick Schettino
Jockey: Rosie Napravnik
Only win came in a slow maiden race. What's he doing here?


BSF: 78

8. Guyana Star Dweej

Trainer: Doodnauth Shivmangal
Jockey: Kent Desormeaux
After abortive workout last week, rider said: "He just didn't want to work." Not a good sign for ex-$25,000 claimer shooting for the moon.


BSF: 84

9. Paynter

Trainer: Bob Baffert
Jockey: Mike Smith
He ran fast in his last win, and he has a bright future, but with only four career starts Baffert's colt may not be seasoned enough for the Belmont.


BSF: 106

10. Optimizer

Trainer: D. Wayne Lukas
Jockey: Corey Nakatani
Wayne Lukas says he'll like the turns at Belmont. Are you kidding, Wayne? He's lost his last three starts by a combined 48 lengths.


BSF: 91

11. I'll Have Another


12. My Adonis

Trainer: Kelly Breen
Jockey: Ramon Dominguez
An 11th-hour addition to the field. Owner and trainer won the Belmont last year with 24-1 Ruler on Ice, but this one's chances look more remote.


BSF: 95
