ROCKETRY won race #6 at Belmont Park today rather handily. 1- 3/8 miles on the turf. Nice win!

PORTMAGEE is entered in the Gr 3 Intercontinental Stakes, race 8, tomorrow, thursday, June 8. Seven furlongs on the turf.

TAGHLEEB is entered in the grade 3 Belmont Gold Cup Invitational Stakes, race 10, on Friday, June 9. Two miles on the turf.

LOCAL HERO is entered in the Easy Goer Stakes, race 2, on Saturday. 1 1/16 miles on dirt.

HARD SCRAMBLE is entered in the grade 2 Woody Stephens Stakes, race 7, on Saturday. Seven furlongs on dirt.


Also running at Belmont:

SNAP DECISION 3yo Phipps family colt in a 1 mile turf allowance - Race 7 on Friday 6/9.. He's 3/1.

He's got some talent and is already G3 placed. Maybe if he does well in this race that he goes to a stakes race next time.
The G1 Belmont Derby Invitiational (turf, for 3 year olds) is exactly 1 month later at Belmont Park.


SNAP DECISION finished 2nd by 3/4 length. He was stuck behind horses, full of energy and waiting for a hole to open. Jock finally had to go wide to get by horses. IMO, SNAP DECISION would have won easily if not for getting stuck waiting for a hole to open.

I agree. Seemed the best to me, too. He had to wait a long time before he got clear.

TIMELINE entered in Pegasus Stakes at Monmouth Sunday! Smart move to get a race over the track if Haskell is their target.

Timeline wins the Pegasus!! And rather easily at that. I don't think he felt the whip once. Now 4 for 4. Next stop Haskell Invitational and a showdown with some of the TC runners. We'll see what he's made of then. I really hope this colt is something exceptional.

This is worrisome. Timeline apparently was stepped on during the race. Appears superficial. Hoping that is ultimately the case.

Good news this afternoon. Timeline okay: http://www.drf.com/news/preview/timelin ... egasus-win

If you watch the replay, you can see when he got stepped on during the race when they are on the backside and Greek Prince runs up on his heels and suddenly Greek Prince checks hard and drops back while Timeline simultaneously surges forward suddenly. That is probably when it happened.
