Saturday's 7th race (4:04pm ET) from Belmont Park is the Grade 1 Vosburgh for 3-year-olds and up traveling six furlongs on the main track.
#6 Rothko (6-1) was chewed up on the pace in the muddy G1 Vanderbilt at the Spa Aug 5. His last two wins were accomplished off a freshening at six panels and Leparoux has booted him home twice. He worked here Sept 25 and appears poised to fire a big tactical shot at playable odds.

#5 Fort Loudon (6-1) must prove himself against older but he is 5-for-5 at 6f and finally ran a good race away from Calder in the G1 King's Bishop.
#1 Sean Avery (7-2) scooted away in his first start off a long layoff Sept 8. He adores 6f and has not finished out of the Exacta since '09.Obvious threat if he can avoid a bounce.
#1a The Lumber Guy (7-2) is lightly raced and dangerous around one turn. The fresh sophomore has the speed to succeed.
#9 Justin Phillip (3-1) usually falls short in the Graded ranks and is 1-for-13 on a fast track. He likes Big Sandy and moves up on wet ground but is probably best used underneath if it is dry on Saturday.
$12 to win #6
