Belmont Stakes contender
Master of Hounds arrived in New York on Tuesday morning without incident
and was put in quarantine at Aqueduct Racetrack. The fifth-place finisher in
the Kentucky Derby was joined by stablemate Viscount Nelson, who is
being pointed toward the Grade 1, $400,000 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap.
Both horses are owned by
John Magnier and trained in Ireland by Aidan O’Brien. They will be released
from quarantine on Thursday and move to Belmont Park.
