Hill Prince Next for Nordic Truce

Nordic Truce, an undefeated 3-year-old colt from the barn of Christophe Clement, breezed on the turf at Belmont Park on Sunday morning in preparation for a start in the Grade 3 Hill Prince on June 4.

 

Clockers caught the sophomore covering four furlongs around dogs in 49.60, but Clement said the colt actually worked an additional furlong.

 

“It was actually five-eighths because he worked past the finish line,” said Clement. “He started behind a horse, but they finished up together.”

 

Owned by Ammerland Stud, the son of Yes It’s True has raced exclusively on the turf, breaking his maiden impressively at Calder before winning the Dania Beach at Gulfstream on January 16 and the Grade 3 Transylvania at Keeneland on April 2.

 

“It’s a long year and the main races will be in the summer and the fall,” Clement said. “But for now we’re just looking at the Hill Prince.”
