Dwyer Likely for Unstoppable U

Unstoppable U, who in his third career start finished sixth in the 1 ½-mile Belmont Stakes, will likely return to the races next Saturday in the Grade 2, $200,000 Dwyer. The gray son of Exchange Rate will have his first breeze since the Belmont either tomorrow or Sunday in preparation for the 1 1/8-mile Dwyer, said Ken McPeek’s assistant, Lars Becdelamotte.

 

“He’s been doing great since the Belmont,” said Becdelamotte of Unstoppable U, who is owned by Susan McPeek and Mojallali Stables, Inc. “He was more mad than anything else. He missed the break and got tangled up with another horse and it was the first time he’d ever been behind horses, first time around two turns, 1 ½ miles … I thought he ran a pretty good race, considering everything.”

 

Unstoppable U broke his maiden over a sloppy six furlongs at Aqueduct on March 31, and returned on April 27 to take a one-mile optional claimer at Belmont.

 

“We’ll see how he does in the Dwyer,” said Becdelamotte. “If he runs well, then he can take the next step to other stakes races.”

 

Unstoppable U is expected to face Teeth of the Dog, a 3 ¾-length winner of the Easy Goer on the Belmont Stakes undercard, and Preakness fourth-place finisher Zetterholm. Monarchic and Morgan’s Guerilla are also probable, with Done Talking questionable.
