Hoo boy...take your heart meds before playing this Irish-bred longshot...his only race on this side of the pond was a win coming from last to first with relative ease. Pace looks like a setup for another win.
8th Race / Belmont
# 4 Alexander Tango (15/1)
Good luck and good racing!!!
I should add that he'll be easy to hate...slowest speed figure of the bunch. But speed figures are based on pace. A slow pace means a low speed figure. Horse and jockey are going for the finish wire, not a high speed figure. This race looks like a fairly quick 6 furlong pace for the 1 1/4 mile, let's say 1:12, which sets it up for Alexander with a 110 late pace rating, the highest of the group.
Win and Place.
