Eight Set for Governor's Handicap

Trainer Howard Belvoir has had great success the last few years in the Governor's Handicap, a trend he hopes to continue Sunday in the venerable stakes with both Assessment and Wasserman.

Wasserman won the Governor's in 2007 and 2008, and Assessment and Wasserman finished second and third last year as Atta Boy Roy won the 2009 Governor's in 1:14 1/5 for 6 ½ furlongs.
