Schettino Busy On Belmont Stakes Day

Trainer Dominick Schettino will celebrate his 46th birthday on Saturday by running five horses on the card, including Five Sixteen in the 144th Belmont Stakes.

 

The only other time Schettino ran a horse in a Triple Crown race came in the 2005 Preakness Stakes when his Galloping Grocer moved to the leaders into the far turn before giving way in the stretch and finishing 13th. Schettino said he later discovered the horse had a lung infection.

 

At 50-1, MeB Racing Stables LLC’s Five Sixteen is among the three longest shots on the morning line, but Schettino is going about his business as he always does.

 

As the son of Invasor acted up in the gate in his most recent start, an entry-level allowance April 18 at Aqueduct, Schettino schooled the gelding in the starting gate Thursday morning and then galloped him 1 ½ miles.

 

“He schooled and he was fine,” the trainer said.

 

Schettino said he will have 12 family members at the track for his birthday and busy race schedule.

 

“I better go to sleep early Friday,” he quipped. “Win, lose or draw in the Belmont, I’ve got four others running, and I treat them all the same. I’m focused on all five of them, not just one.”
