Belmont Stakes 2013: Oxbow Doing Well

A trio of Belmont Stakes 2013 contenders breezed at Churchill Downs on Thursday, including Preakness (GI) winner Oxbow, Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (GI) runner-up Golden Soul and Will Take Charge, and all exited their workouts in good order.
 
The D. Wayne Lukas duo of Oxbow and Will Take Charge, who was eighth in the Kentucky Derby and seventh in the Preakness, both breezed six furlongs Thursday. Oxbow went after the renovation break and went in 1:14.60 and Will Take Charge went shortly after the track opened at 6 a.m. (all times Eastern) and went in 1:15.80.
 
“They’re both very good this morning,” Lukas said.
 
Oxbow and Will Take Charge will van to Belmont Park on Monday and will be joined by Lukas trainees Laurie’s Rocket and Optimizer. Laurie’s Rocket will run in the True North Handicap (GII) and Optimizer will run in the Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap (GI).
 
Golden Soul, in his first work since finishing second to Orb in the Kentucky Derby, breezed five furlongs in 1:00.40 for trainer Dallas Stewart.
 
“It was one of his best works yesterday and he really came out of it good,” Stewart said. “He wasn’t tired and ate great last night. I totally think we’re in it to win it now.”
 
Golden Soul walked the shedrow of Barn 48 at Churchill Downs on Friday, but will return to the track Saturday.
 
“He’ll jog Saturday, gallop Sunday, gallop Monday and then jog or gallop on Tuesday before flying to New York,” Stewart said. “He’ll gallop up there on Wednesday and Thursday and then jog Friday.”
