Belmont Stakes Still Possible for Prime Cut

Prime Cut, who finished third in the Grade 2 Peter Pan at Belmont Park on May 14, remains under consideration for the Belmont with a final decision expected late Saturday, said trainer Neil Howard.

 

“We’re still possible,” said Howard from Churchill Downs, where Prime Cut worked five furlongs in 1:03.60 on Memorial Day. “Mr. [Donald] Adam, the farm manager and I will have a conversation tomorrow evening and we’ll probably make a decision then.”

 

Howard said the Bernstein colt was doing very well, and added that while the 1 ½ miles is a question mark for all the starters, he feels the colt’s stamina and pedigree are a plus.

 

“He ran very well in an important prep race for the Belmont, the Peter Pan, so he has a good race over the track,” added the trainer. “But in a race like the Belmont, you don’t want to just say, ‘Yee-hah, let’s go!’ You’ve got the two obvious horses in Animal Kingdom and Shackleford, both of whom still look strong to me, and Nehro as well.”
