Trainer Robert “Butch” Reid knows exactly what he's up against in sending Navy Commander to his first graded stakes test in Sunday's betfair.com Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park against the likes of Kentucky Derby runner-up Good Magic and Preakness runner-up Bravazo.

Fortunately, said Reid, the horse doesn't.

“It's more daunting for me than it is for the horse. He probably doesn't care too much,” Reid said.

Ohio Derby Winner Core Beliefs Joins Field For July 29 Haskell Invitational

As much as trainer Peter Eurton would have liked to have found a softer spot as the next start for Ohio Derby winner Core Beliefs, owner Gary Broad had other ideas. So Eurton announced today that the colt is heading East for the betfair.com Haskell Invitational on July 29 at Monmouth Park, joining a field that is headlined by Kentucky Derby runner-up Good Magic and Preakness runner-up Bravazo.

“My owner wants to come. He says it’s the chance of a lifetime,” said the California-based Eurton. “He wants to take on Good Magic and the rest.”

In addition to Good Magic and Bravazo, Navy Commander, Roaming Union and Reride are the other likely starters, with a couple more possible from a group that includes Lone Sailor, Mr Freeze, Promises Fulfilled and Flameaway.

The Grade 1 Haskell Invitational, which carries a $1 million purse, will be televised live on NBC-TV from 5-6 p.m.
