Always in a Tiz Out of Belmont Stakes; Connections Opt for Easy Goer
ELMONT, N.Y. – Always in a Tiz will not run in Saturday’s Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 8 at Belmont Park and instead will compete in the $150,000 Easy Goer Stakes on the undercard, according to The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) racing office.
With Always in a Tiz out of consideration for the Belmont Stakes, the racing office says 14 horses are likely to enter in the 1 ½-mile race. The last time there were 14 starters in the Belmont Stakes was 1996. NYRA will use a single starting gate if 14 or fewer horses compete in the race.
