It was a slow week for racing nationally, with Belmont Park hosting the weekend's only Grade I race, the Mother Goose Stakes.
May Care, last seen running 10th in the Kentucky Derby, was odds-on to
defeat what appeared to be four outclassed rivals. She did so with
ease, covering the 8½ furlongs in 1 minute, 42.06 seconds with minimum
encouragement from jockey John Velazquez.
