Can He Win The Belmont?
During some years, the new shooters at the Belmont include some really talented horses that developed a little too late to make the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness. Other years, we find borderline stakes horses taking a shot at a big prize. Guyana Star Dweej is an example of a borderline stakes horse taking a shot.
Guyana Star Dweej broke his maiden two races back at Aqueduct. He followed that up with a 2nd place finish against $75k Optional Claiming horses at Belmont at the end of April. And that's about it for this colt in terms of notable accomplishments. He's never beaten horses that have won a race let along tried to run against graded stakes competition.
Anything's possible in horse racing but this colt seems way out of his league in the Belmont and should be one of the longest shots on the board.
