Friday Belmont Stakes Photos

Date: 06/06/2008

On the day before the Belmont Stakes, very few entrants came out to the track for the morning gallops. Second choice Casino Drive was expected to gallop as he has every day this week, but a stone bruise was discovered in his left hind hoof so trainer Kazuo Fujisawa brought him back to the barn. "He has a small issue with his left-hind leg, and we were not happy. So we did not go to the track," Nobutaka Tada, a spokesman for Fujisawa, said. "We have not yet scratched him from the race. We think it might be a small stone bruise and we will watch it closely."

This afternoon are the Brooklyn Handicap (G2) at 1 1/2 miles and the Hill Prince Stakes (G3) at 1 mile on the turf for the 3-year-olds, so post them later this evening.

Macho Again galloped and exited the track via the paddock on Friday morning. Here he is walking back through the barn area afterwards.

Big Brown came out on Friday morning for a slow jog once around the track at Belmont Park. First he stood on the track for a while then started his jog. Right is Big Brown on the horse path from his barn to the track. Left is him standing watching the other horses before he starts his jog.

Once Big Brown finished his jog, he walked back to the barn with a hoard of photographers in hot pursuit. Right is him slowing down at the end of his jog. Left is him walking back to the barn on the horse path.

Denis of Cork came out for a gallop Friday morning. Left is him galloping. Right is while he was walking the shedrow to cool down afterwards.

Guadalcanal, the last minute entry to the Belmont Stakes, was out for a gallop as well. Here he is coming off the track.
