BELMONT PARK NOTES: Sunday, May 27, 2012
ELMONT, N.Y. – With trainer Doug O’Neill looking on, Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another had another routine morning at Belmont Park, jogging four furlongs and galloping seven furlongs over a wet main track under exercise rider Humberto Gomez as he continued preparations for the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 9.
“He just skipped over [the track],” said O’Neill, speaking at his first daily press briefing after arriving from California earlier in the morning. “He looked great. The first couple of days we were at Pimlico the track had a light seal on it, so he skipped over that as well. It didn’t seem to bother him at all.
