ALPHA WILL SKIP BELMONT STAKES AFTER DEVELOPING A FEVER


ELMONT, N.Y. – Godolphin Racing’s Alpha will miss the June 9 Belmont Stakes after developing a fever, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said Thursday.

“He spiked a temperature on Tuesday evening,” McLaughlin said. “103. He was fine by 11 p.m. that evening after treatment, fine yesterday, and he’s fine today, but it’s too high a temperature too close to the race. It’s unfortunate.”
