Five Sixteen turned in his final pre-Belmont Stakes
breeze on Thursday, posting a 1:00.98 five-furlong move in company with
stablemate Live for Today.
“It was good,” said Dominick Schettino, who trains Five Sixteen for MeB Racing Stables. “He did everything we asked.”
Schettino added that Five Sixteen will have schooling
sessions in the starting gate and paddock prior to the Belmont Stakes.
The colt is 1-1-1 in six starts and enters the race off a fourth in an
April 18 optional claimer at Aqueduct Racetrack.
