Connections Pleased With Haynesfield

Dual graded stakes winner Haynesfield added a second Empire Classic victory to his resume on Saturday at Belmont and appeared to emerge from the 1 1/8-mile race in good order, assistant trainer Toby Sheets reported Sunday.

"He's doing very well," said Sheets. "We're just going to enjoy this for awhile. Having him back is nice. A mile and an eighth off five months off? We're happy with that."

The son of Speightstown - who sandwiched an upset victory in last year's Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational between his Empire Classic triumphs - has run just three times in 2011. This spring, he finished fourth in the Grade 3 Westchester and fifth in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap before going to the sidelines with foot issues. Saturday's Empire Classic was the horse's first win since he stunned Blame in the 2010 Gold Cup. Blame would go on to defeat Zenyatta in the Breeders' Cup Classic and earn Champion Older Male honors.

Owned by Turtle Bird Stable and trained by Steve Asmussen, Haynesfield now claims a record of 10-2-1 from 18 starts with nearly $1.4 million in career earnings.
