2016 Futurity Stakes Entries at Belmont Park

Theory - highly regarded colt will race for the second time for trainer Todd Pletcher. His only start was a good one - a nice 5 1/2 length maiden score with a field best 85 Beyer Speed Figure at Saratoga July 30. He looked dangerous in his only career start, had a 1:00.50 five-furlong bullet breeze Monday morning and will be out to keep his roll going from gate 2. Javier Castellano has been tabbed to ride.

Reckling - has placed in both of his career starts for trainer Steve Asmussen - one win and a second place finish. He was an OK second behind Theory in his debut - at Saratoga July 30 and broke maiden last time out in gate-to-wire fashion against a field of 10 also at Saratoga August 27. Reckling will be out to keep the upward trend going Saturday when he departs from gate 4 with Irad Ortiz in the irons.

Star Empire - Wesley Ward trained colt has three career starts with two wins and a third place finish. He won his first two - a MSW at first asking on this track May 18 and an Allowance Optional Claiming at Presque Isle Downs August 9. Last time out was a respectable third in his stakes debut - the G3 Arlington-Washington Futurity September 10. Star Empire has been a factor in every race so far and hopes to be again Saturday from the outside post 5. Tyler Gaffalione has the mount.

Moves Like Ali - Jeremiah Englehart trained colt will hit the track for the second time on Saturday having posted an impressive 1 1/2 length maiden score in gate-to-wire fashion in his only career start - at Saratoga September 4.

The Walk - Thomas Albertrani trained gelding finished sixth in his debut - at Saratoga July 30 and followed that with a maiden score in his only other career start - last time out on this track September 17. The Walk has shown improvement and will be out to make a statement in his stakes debut from post 3. Kendrick Carmouche gets the call.
