ELMONT, N.Y. – Union Rags, winner of Saturday’s 144th running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes, was a happy horse this morning in Michael Matz’s barn at the Fair Hill training center in Elkton, Md., the trainer reported.
“He was looking out the door, waiting to get outside,” said Matz of Union Rags, who departed Belmont Park several hours after his neck victory over Paynter in the 1 ½-mile “Test of the Champion.” “He got out [to the paddock], had a little roll, started to eat some grass and watched the other horses walk to the track and training.”
