Belisarius Will Not Run in Secretariat

According to his connections, Irish import Belisarius will not run in the Grade I $500,000 Secretariat Stakes.  The consistent son of Montjeu had cleared quarantine, but developed a small issue.

“He had a bit of a cough yesterday and a bit of a cough this morning, as well,” reported Aidan O’Brien’s traveling head lad Pat Keating.  “We decided not to run.”

Owned by the partnership of Gary Barber, Wachtel Stable and Brous Stable, the bay sophomore was entering the event off a second-place finish in the Listed Lenebane Stakes at Roscommon in Ireland.  Expected to show speed in his American debut, the Irish-bred’s absence now makes WinStar Farm and Gary Barber’s Tourist the lone speed.
