Breeders' Cup Classic Next for Ruler On Ice

Ruler On Ice Belmont top story.
Trainer Kelly John Breen has confirmed that the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 5, will be the next start for Belmont Stakes winner Ruler On Ice.

 

The Classic winning gelding, who calls the Monmouth Park barn area his home, will continue his training over the Oceanport oval before shipping to Churchill Downs at the end of the month.

 

“He went an easy five furlongs, 1:02 flat, last week,” said Breen, a 42-year-old resident of Farmingdale, NJ.  “We’ll probably give him an easy weekend and then work him on the 22nd and 29th.  He’ll ship out after his last work.”

A son of Haskell winner Roman Ruler, Ruler On Ice debuted at Monmouth last summer, finishing fifth as the favorite on Sept. 19.  He broke through with his maiden win at Delaware Park two weeks later, his last start as a 2-year-old.

 

Ruler On Ice’s 3-year-old campaign began with a runner-up performance in an Aqueduct allowance on Feb. 4, before taking that condition at Parx on Feb. 22.  That victory led to a third-place finish in the Sunland Park Derby and then a runner-up effort in the Federico Tesio at Pimlico.

 

The breakthrough performance came on June 11, when at odds of 24-1 Ruler On Ice took the lead at the top of the stretch and held off all challengers to capture the Belmont Stakes.  Since then, Ruler On Ice posted a third-place finish in the Resorts Casino Hotel Haskell, a fourth in the Travers and last out a hard-charging second in the Pennsylvania Derby.

 

From 10 career starts, Ruler On Ice sports a record of 3-3-2, good for earnings of $1,108,500.  He races in the colors of Rumson residents George and Lori Hall.
