Vosburgh Stakes Picks for Belmont Saturday

Vosburgh Stakes Picks for Belmont Saturday

Category : News - Fri 30/09/2016 - 09:01 EDT

AP Indian is the solid odds-on favorite for Saturday’s (G1) Vosburgh Stakes, while the rest of the field is evenly matched.

Riding a streak of five straight wins in 2016, including back-to-back scores in Grade 1 races this past summer at Saratoga, AP Indian (1/1 in the morning line) has improved with age, and stands out as the class of this field. He ended last year with a pair of sixth-place runs that marked the only time in his 16-race career that he was not first or second.Having already beaten a couple others entered here, it's difficult not to put him in the top spot.

Underneath, things get more interesting. Holy Boss (4-1) has been competitive at the graded-stakes level, and he ran second to AP Indian last out in the (G1) Alfred G. Vanderbilt and a repeat of that effort would be good enough to get in the money here. There are a pair of Florida-breds expected to go to the gate, with XY Jet (7-2) having rattled off a string of lower-level stakes wins in the spring before shipping over to Dubai and running second in a Group 1 event on the synthetic surface at Meyden. The other, Stallwalkin' Dude (8-1) ran very well last out to get up for third in the (G1) Forego at Saratoga.

The Vosbugh Stakes goes Saturday, Oct. 1 from Belmont Park. Post time is 5:11 PM Eastern.
