Racing Form — Belmont Stakes

The 2019 Kentucky Derby (Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports)

HORSE: Mister Sandman

COMMENTS: An older horse, been around the track. Doesn’t have much speed or poise or elegance to its gait, and never looks good in the paddock. Temperamental and moody under the saddle, might need a strong whip to keep in form. Still, seems aware that the Glue Factory in the Sky is close at hand and has the fire and the will to run the track, wet or dry. Charges out of the gate and on the track with focus and undistracted. A comer. Still: stiff in the hindquarters. Trouble in the mud.


HORSE: Booker Man

COMMENTS: Not a racehorse
