Here is the latest look at Lookin at Lee, one of the contenders for the 2017 Belmont Stakes to be run at Belmont Park.
Owner: L and N Racing LLC
Trainer: Steven Asmussen
Pedigree: Lookin At Lucky – Langara Lass, by Langfuhr
Last Race Result: 4th Place, Preakness Stakes, 5/20/17
Even though there's a lack of a Triple Crown possibility at the Belmont Stakes, there are two horses, Classic Empire and Lookin At Lee, who have matching results in opposite orders in the first two legs of the Triple Crown. Classic Empire finished fourth at the Kentucky Derby and second at the Preakness Stakes. Lookin At Lee was the exact opposite.
Lookin At Lee was a 33 to 1 longshot at the Kentucky Derby who had a fantastic run to get to almost quietly finish second to the running away Always Dreaming. He never quite got the kick he needed to challenge at the Preakness Stakes, but he settled in as one of the secondary favorites at 10 to 1. Here at the Belmont Stakes, he could be the third favorite behind Classic Empire and Epicharis. For the time being, he's a +500 choice, and that feels about right. The contest will be between he and Tapwrit for who will ultimately be the third favorite in all likelihood.
Way back in April when we first took a look at Lookin At Lee, we noted that he might flat out be a better horse at distances. So far, that theory is turning out to be true. Who knows what could have happened had the Preakness Stakes been a little bit longer? He was fourth best on that day, 5 1/4 lengths off of the winning result of Cloud Computing. But he was closing in a hurry from 8 1/2 lengths back in the stretch, and with another eighth of a mile or so, maybe he could have won the race.
The same could be said at the Kentucky Derby. Lookin At Lucky was getting closer and closer to Always Dreaming throughout the end of the race. For as impressive as Always Dreaming was, Lookin At Lee had the more impressive run to us since he streaked in from 17th at the outset to finish second best.
The path to victory for Lookin At Lee is clear. He's going to have to hope that the early speed at the Belmont Stakes wears out some of the contenders. If that turns out to be the case, he's got a real shot of streaking to the front of the field in the closing quarter of a mile or so. Assuming that jockey Corey Lanerie gets the mount for trainer Steve Asmussen once again – and there's no reason to think otherwise after two good performances at Churchill Downs and Pimlico Race Course – he'll be light on Lookin At Lee at the outset and ultimately push in the last portions of the race.
What really has separated Lookin At Lee over the course of the whole Triple Crown season is the fact that he's one of the only really good deep closers we've got at this level at the moment. From Classic Empire to Always Dreaming to Epicharis, they're all frontrunners for the most part, and so many of the challengers to win these big races have been doing so from the head of the pack.
The deep closer is a dying breed in top notch thoroughbred racing. Consider Lookin At Lee a bit of a throwback. With that being said, he's going to be live at the Belmont Stakes, and we have no reason to believe he won't once again factor into exotics to wrap up the Triple Crown campaign.
With a maximum of 16 horses accepted into the Belmont Stakes field, there is a significant vetting process to qualify the horses among this group of three-year olds. Horses which finished in the top four at either the Kentucky Derby or Preakness Stakes are guaranteed entry into the Belmont Stakes, while the other starters are placed in the field based on earnings in graded stakes races and non-restricted sweepstakes races.
Belmont Stakes post positions and morning line odds for all horses in the field, will be updated until the day of the race.
