There were some runners on the track this morning at Belmont!
Tonalist worked in company with a work mate, went well 59 and change for 5, but was apparently a bit outworked by his stablemate, who I had liked in a race on Pimlico day- Life in Shambles, going in Easy Goer next Saturday.
California Chrome apparently was given an official 5f work in 59 and change without being asked. He galloped out in 112, 126 and change, and 140 for the mile being pulled up. Visually, at least the DRF clockers were pretty impressed.
Social Inclusion sizzled a half in 45, galloped out in 57, 110, and 124. There is no doubt he is a fast sucker, but he has fallen apart before the start of his past two races, and have backed up in both his route races.
He and Tonalist are pretty lightly raced. I somehow think they are both going to be looking for moving sidewalk at the top of the stretch.
No one knows if Chrome will get the mile and a half, but I bet the other trainers, after that work seemingly proves he is still going strong, are really hoping he can't.
Just hope they all come out of the woks in good shape.
Ride on Curlin still galloping strong.
Medal Count works 6f in 110+ and out in 124 at CD.
and now General A Rod is apparently a go for the Belmont as well. worked 5f in 100+ this morning at CD.
