Which horse has the best pedigree to handle twelve furlongs in the final leg of the Triple Crown on Saturday, June 9 at Belmont Park? My Belmont Stakes alphabetical list continues with Five Sixteen.  
 
Five Sixteen’s sire Invasor (ARG) raced 12 times from 2005-07. He won eleven times including the G1 BC Classic in 2006, defeating Bernardini. He captured the Dubai World Cup in ’07 and banked more than $7.8 million in his career. His current stud fee is $20k.
 
 
 
Invasor’s sire Candy Stripes (by Blushing Groom) won 2 of 6 starts and finished 2nd in the G1 French Two Thousand Guineas in 1985. He sired 59 stakes winners including Leroidesanimeaux (BRZ). He died of colic in 2007 at age 25.
 
Invasor’s dam Quendom-ARG (by Interprete-ARG) is a full sister to Group 1 winner Reina Victoriosa (ARG). The latter is the dam of stakes winners More Than Regal and Ready Ruler.  
 
Five Sixteen’s mother Third Street (by Salt Lake) captured 1 of 4 starts. She has thrown six winners including stakes winner Doc’s Doll.  
 
Salt Lake (by Deputy Minister) won the G1 Hopeful as a juvenile in 1991 and captured the G2 King’s Bishop and G2 Fall Highweight as a sophomore the following year. The late horse sired many stakes winners including grade one winner Ordway.  
 
Third Street’s dam Bisque Doll (by Quadrangle) was unraced. She has thrown multiple winners including Nostradamus (by Nikoli-IRE).  
 
Five Sixteen will be ridden by Rosie Napravnik in the Belmont Stakes. He remains eligible for an entry level spot and was not a serious threat in his first start vs. winners on April 18. He does not own a stellar marathon pedigree and figures to attend the pace before weakening at Big Sandy on June 9.
