Belmont: Gold Cup Field Takes Shape

Super Saturday, October 1, is shaping up to be a stellar day of racing with a total of six graded stakes, five of them Grade 1s, and all of them “Win and You’re In” races for the Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs in November. ESPN Classic will carry live coverage from 4:30-7:30 p.m.

 

Repole Stable’s top 3-year-old, Stay Thirsty, winner of the Grade 2 Jim Dandy and Grade 1 Travers, will face his elders for the first time in the Grade 1, $750,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational. Also expected for the 1 ¼-mile race are 2010 Belmont Stakes winner Drosselmeyer; Grade 1 Woodward and Whitney runner-up Flat Out, a 6 ½-length winner of the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap at Belmont on July 2; 2010 Florida Derby winner Ice Box, most recently sixth in the Woodward, and A. U. Miner, sixth in the Greenwood Cup at Parx Racing last time out.
