10 words or less about every Belmont Stakes horse

Medal Count: Closing threat, needs improvement. Wise guys will like him.

California Chrome: 36 years. Many disappointments. Hope.

Matterhorn: Ambitious placing. Waiting for later in year.

Commanding Curve: Heavy buzz. Another possible closer. Likely overbet.

Ride on Curlin: Word is he’s tired. Not surprising.

Matuszak: Connections are his biggest asset.

Samraat: Gutsy NY-bred. Absent bias, too much to expect a win here.

Commissioner: Pedigree screams this race. Worth a long look.

Wicked Strong: Rested. Another possible closer. Is pace hot enough?

General ARod: Will give a solid try, but better for Indiana Derby.

Tonalist: Potential heartbreaker. Fast enough to do it.
