2023 Belmont Stakes Saturday Workout Photos

Date: 06/05/2023

The Belmont Stakes Racing Festival runs from June 8 to June 10, highlighted by the 155th Belmont Stakes run on Saturday June 10. The weather is currently looking pretty good on Belmont Day, mostly cloudy with temperatures in the high 70's and no rain. Here are Forte and Tapit Trice in their final timed works and Preakness winner National Treasure galloping on Saturday at Belmont Park.

horse racinghorse racing Forte visited the main track following the renovation break, and logged five furlongs under Irad Ortiz, Jr. in 59.67 seconds over a fast main track working in company with maiden winner Varatti [59.72]. NYRA clockers caught the son of Violence galloping out six furlongs in 1:12 2/5.

"I thought it was a super good breeze, Pletcher said. "He went 59 and 3 and it looked like he was doing it well within himself, good gallop out. He came back and cooled out quickly. It was exactly what we were hoping he would go out there and do and I think based off the strength of his breezes, hes coming into it as well as we hope.

horse racinghorse racing National Treasure galloped on Saturday and is slated to breeze Monday in preparation for the Grade 1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets.

"You never know until they do it, Baffert said. "He handled the Preakness distance and it wasn't a problem for him. We're all in the same boat. None of them probably want to go that far, but if they don't go too fast, they can do it. I just want him to show up like he did at Pimlico. He's never really run a bad race. All his races have been competitive. He's a pretty consistent horse. He's happy and he'll breeze tomorrow and hopefully everything goes well."

horse racinghorse racing Tapit Trice went a half-mile in 49.89 seconds in company with dual winner Classic Catch [50.56]. NYRA clockers caught Tapit Trice galloping out five-eighths in 1:02 flat.

"I thought he looked great. Hes getting over the ground really well, Pletcher said of Tapit Trice. "Hes a good-moving horse. We were looking to do a little less with him than we were with Forte, since he ran in the Derby and has had two breezes since then. It was more of a maintenance work for him and it seems like he continues to take to the main track here really well.
