Arcangelo Race History
Arcangelo has a career record of 4 starts, 2 wins, 1 second, and no third-place finishs. He comes into the Stakes placing 5th place on the leaderboard. After running second and fourth in his first two races last winter at Gulfstream Park, this ridgling broke through in March with an eye-catching 3 ½-length win in a one-mile Gulfstream maiden race. Arcangelo then came back nearly two months later in a tough stakes assignment and aced that by winning the 1 1/8-mile Peter Pan Stakes going one turn at Belmont Park.
Arcangelo Prediction and Pick
Arcangelo has an up-and-coming trainer looking for her first Belmont Stakes victory. With an Equibase Speed Figure of 97, Arcangelo has 8-1 odds for Belmont victory. Arcangelo will now take another jump in class Saturday, and he should carry double-digit odds at post time going up against the likes of Forte, National Treasure, Angel of Empire, and Tapit Trice. Pulling the upset against that bunch off of four weeks of rest is unlikely, but Arcangelo has a profile similar to this year’s Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve winner Mage in that he may be somewhat of a late developer and could be reaching peak form at just the right time.
