2010 Belmont Entries

Date: 06/02/2010

A field of 12 will face the starter in the 142nd running of the $1 million Belmont Stakes (G1) on Saturday June 5, the final leg of the Triple Crown. Kentucky Derby runner-up Ice Box, who won the Florida Derby in March, drew post 6 and is the 3-1 favorite on the morning line with jockey Jose Lezcano back aboard. In to challenge the Nick Zito trainee include 7-2 First Dude and jockey Ramon Dominguez in post 11, second in the Preakness Stakes, and 9-2 third choice from post 5 Fly Down with jockey John Velazquez, winner of the Dwyer Stakes last time out. This is the first time since 2006, and only the third time since 1970, that the Belmont has lacked both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner.

Ernie Reichard, racing manager for owner Robert LaPenta of favorite Ice Box said, "(In the Kentucky Derby) it was stop and start, start and stop and once he got going on the outside he just made up ground. We gave him time off after the Derby, there was no need to rush him, and we had another nice horse in the barn in Jackson Bend (for the Preakness)."

Dale Romans, trainer of First Dude said, "When Ramon (Dominguez) jumped off him after the Florida Derby with all the trouble he was in, he said, 'the Belmont will be this horse's race because he wants to go 1 1/2 and he'll love that track.' We sent him up here, it's been 2 weeks, and he seems to have gotten over it really well. You're not going to skip a classic with a horse like this. We were waiting to go 1 1/2. He's a throwback kind of horse, a big rugged kind of horse, nothing bothers him, and I don't think three weeks is going to bother him. We think with extra distance and a little more experience, we can turn the tables on Ice Box."

Post time for the Belmont Stakes will be 6:32pm Eastern and it will be race 11 of 13 on the card. ESPN will televise the undercard from noon to 5pm with ABC taking over from 5pm to 7pm.
