BELMONT STAKES (G1) QUOTES   Kelly Breen, winning trainer of Ruler On Ice (No. 3): “He wouldn’t grow up. We were trying to see if with time he would mature without having to put blinkers on him.

  • lsbrilliance77 · I'm saying I think Animal Kingdom will show it's Greatness, Mucho Macho Man to show you and me what it's mad of, Stay Thirsty to come in with the best of them, Prime Cut on his tail, Nehro n 2nd, 3rd Master of Hounds, Shackleford after that. Hold on let me look again, that was just off the top of my head. Ruler of Ice is not a bad horse and it has an ok starting position. · 1042 days ago ·

  • JohnNicoletti · Speed on the front in the Belmont is a tough task. I love Shackelford, and hope he can navigate the Belmont distance. The horse has surprised me from the derby on. Hope he is at least in the money. · 1043 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · Shackleford's not a fast horse but he does grind away.Considering he is the lone speed with 10 deep closers and AK the lone horse with tactical speed it sets up for both of them unless we get a deep closer who happens to be a closer like MMM with all his shoes intact.Against everything I know about macho uno progeny being sprinters I like this horse for this track. · 1044 days ago ·
  • jinlie01 · sometimes you have to go with your gut instincts icy. That's what kept me on the bandwagon of Shackleford in the Preakness after his Derby performance. Good thing I did. Still sticking with "Shack" in the Preakness because of his cruising speed and I think his running style will suit the Belmont turns. Kinda thinking about adding Brilliant Speed into the mix. He deserves a long look off his bloodlines and his grinding style of running. I know his dirt record is 0-3 but his Beyers have steadily improved and his KY Derby run wasn't bad considering he was running 8 wide on the far turn and only beaten less than 6 lengths. · 1044 days ago ·
