War of Will arrives at Belmont Park
Date: 06/03/2019

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 field of possibly nine or ten. The weather is currently looking pretty good on Belmont Day, partly cloudy with temperatures in the low 70's.

"He got here this morning, he walked, and they bathed him," said Casse's assistant Jamie Begg. "He was on his toes when he got in this morning, but he settled in now. He's happy. This barn is good because it's kind of secluded, so it's kind of quiet."

On Saturday, his blinkers - which were added after Bourbon War's fourth-place effort behind Maximum Security, Bodexpress and Code of Honor in the Grade 1 Florida Derby - will be removed, and Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, a three-time winner of the "Test of the Champion" will be aboard.

He worked four furlongs in 50.16 seconds on Friday morning on the Belmont main track with Joel Rosario, who will pilot the Mark Casse trainee in the Belmont, aboard. "He worked an easy half-mile with a good gallop out," said Jamie Begg, assistant to Casse. "He did it the way he likes to do it and he did it the right way. Joel was very happy with the breeze."
