TIME TO TRAVEL is entered in the Sir Barton Stakes Saturday on the Preakness undercard. They seem to be rushing this horse. Ran him in the Lexington just 2 weeks after his maiden win and he didn't hit the board and now just 3 weeks later in this. ????

Lasix added and jockey change from Prado to John Velazquez.

Here's something fun. Doc Cebu won the Willowdale Steeplechase Amateur Timber Stakes in Pennsylvania on Sunday, May 13. Long race! Seemed like it went on forever.

I found a video of it. It's race #5: https://vimeo.com/album/4588100/video/217603454

Found the chart, too.

Well, Time to Travel is entered in yet another race. This time it's the G-2 Penn Mile this Saturday at Penn National. He just raced in May 20 in the Sir Barton and he hasn't had a work since that race. So maybe the Penn Mile will be his first work????

Diadura is entered that same day in the Penn Oaks. This will be her second race off a 6-month layoff. She has had some good works.


TIme to Travel finished 7th
Diadura finished 5th

Long, short, turf, dirt. Hard Spun really is a versatile sire, isn't he? :D

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.

PORTMAGEE finished 3rd, so she is now Grade 3 placed, in addition to being a stakes winner.
