Pros – Finished 3rd in the Preakness Stakes and won his race previous to that, the Grade 3 Lexington.

Cons – 6th place finish at the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby.

Quick Thoughts – "It was a simple half-mile, nothing complicated, just let him stretch his legs over the track," trainer Ken McPeek said. "I think that horses need a little work over this racetrack before they run here and he handled it fine. What I call a 'happy half' - just keep him happy, switch his leads, give him a peek at the scenery, all that. Dylan said he was a little conservative with him, just kind of went easy and finished up well."

James Scully of Brisnet is picking Senior Investment to win this weekend’s Belmont Stakes:

I’m going with #8 Senior Investment off a strong finish at Pimilico. He broke poorly and was steadied leaving the far turn before finishing up swiftly from far off the pace, rallying past five rivals in eye-catching fashion through the stretch.

Kenny McPeek touted the Preakness as a Belmont Stakes prep pre-race and Senior Investment brings improving form as well as increasing BRIS Speed Ratings into the race. Out of a mare by Travers winner Deputy Commander, the chestnut will look to launch his move sooner in the Belmont, advancing into a menacing position by upper stretch.
