Gio Ponti on course for Manhattan

Gio Ponti, the reigning Eclipse champion as top turf male, breezed five furlongs on the turf this morning as he prepares for the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap on Belmont Stakes day.

 

“Gio Ponti is on course for the Manhattan,” trainer Christophe Clement proclaimed. “He will work again next weekend. I am very happy with the way he went.”

 

The nation’s top turf male in 2009 and 2010 and top older male in 2009, Gio Ponti covered the five furlongs in 1:01.12 around the dogs over a firm turf course. It was his third work since finishing fifth, beaten less than two lengths in the Dubai World Cup on March 26 in his only start of 2011.
