Santiva warms up for Belmont Stakes

Kentucky Derby sixth-place finisher Santiva took another step toward a start in the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes with a 1:00.60 five-furlong breeze at Churchill Downs on Saturday.


“[The workout] went super and I’m really happy with how he’s doing now,” said Eddie Kenneally, who trains the son of Giant’s Causeway for Tom R. Walters.


Kenneally said he’ll make a final decision on when Santiva will ship to New York after the colt turns in his final workout at Churchill Downs next Saturday.


“We’ll breeze him next week, and we’ll go from there,” said Kenneally.


Santiva, who broke his maiden when he defeated Astrology in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill in November, prepped for the Kentucky Derby with a second in the Grade 2 Risen Star at the Fair Grounds in February and a ninth in the Grade 1 Blue Grass over Keeneland’s Polytrack in April.
