The Belmont Stakes Trophy
Date: 06/01/2019

The Belmont Stakes Racing Festival runs from June 6 to June 8, highlighted by the 151st Belmont Stakes run on Saturday June 8 with Kentucky Derby 8th place finisher and Preakness Stakes winner War of Will the probable favorite in a likely field of nine. The weather is currently looking pretty good on Belmont Day, partly cloudy with temperatures in the low 70's.

Trainer Todd Pletcher said, "I thought [Intrepid Heart] had another good work and strong gallop out. I had him finish a mile in 1:38 and change. I think we got a solid work out of him. He seemed to be happy and moving well. He worked on the outside last time, so I just wanted to work him again with the blinkers on and have him on the inside this time and thought it went smoothly."

He seemed very relaxed and got into a good comfortable rhythm. He stayed steady all the way around and put in a nice seven-eighths gallop out. He had a really strong workout last week, so we didn't have to do quite as much today. He seemed happy and moving well."

He went four furlongs in 49.03 seconds in his second breeze since being placed 14th in the Kentucky Derby last month at Churchill Downs. After breezing four furlongs on the Belmont training track on May 25, Tax went in company with New York-bred Blurred Line on Saturday, with his time the 33rd-fastest of a group of 68.

Trainer Todd Pletcher said, "Very solid work. Consistent with what he's been doing. He got into a nice rhythm. We're happy with how he's been doing since Dubai."

Right: Tale of Silence galloped this morning. He was 2nd last out in the Gulfstream Park Mile (G2) for trainer Barclay Tagg and could go next in the Metropolitan Mile.
