If Mark Valeski runs in the Belmont, one horse he won’t have to worry
about facing is El Padrino, who beat Mark Valeski by a nose in the
Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds on Feb. 25.
Trainer Todd Pletcher said Monday that El Padrino, 13th in the
Kentucky Derby, was sent over the weekend to Win Star Farm, where he
will get a little vacation and be pointed for a fall campaign.
