Postscript: Belmont Park, Race #3

The field ran up to Charge Now on the turn, but he had plenty in the stretch to pull away under a hand ride from Joel Rosario. Lieutenant Seany O ran well to be a clear second.

Questions Answered

Will Charge Now emerge as a contender in the three-year old division?

Absolutely. He’s reportedly being pointed towards the Travers. He’ll be fun to follow as the summer progresses.

How will Lieutenant Seany O appreciate the added distance?  

He appreciated the distance and stayed sharp for David Jacobson.  He ran well and stayed on in the stretch to finish a clear second as the third choice.

Is Howl a potential Belmont Park “Horse for Course”?

He made a nice move to Charge Now on the turn, but didn’t have anything substantial for the drive. The jury is still out on Howl, but he could move forward against the right field.
