Can He Win The Belmont Stakes?
As one of the longest shots on the morning line (30/1), Unstoppable U appears to be up against it in the Belmont Stakes in his first start against stakes company AND his first time racing longer than a mile He's undefeated in two lifetime starts, but those two races were against maidens and optional claiming horses. He won't be facing anything similar to optional claimers in the Belmont
In his first two races, Unstoppable U displayed a front-running tactical style that would appear to be difficult to successfully employ in the Belmont. With both Paynter and My Adonis to his outside, Unstoppable U is unlikely to get any breathers in the early stages of the race. It's tough to envision this colt having much left in the tank in the final quarter mile.
