Grade 1 winner Sweet Reason remains on course for her next engagement, the Grade 2 Gazelle on Saturday April 5, after working a mile in company with Grade 2 Jerome hero Noble Moon Sunday morning over Belmont Park's training track.

 

The two went out shortly after the second renovation break at 9:30 a.m., with trainer Leah Gyarmati catching them in 1:40.

 

"They finished up well," said Gyarmati. "The first part was a little slow, but they both came down the lane pretty good."

 

Gyarmati confirmed Sweet Reason, a half-length winner of her only start this year, remains on target for the 1 1/8-mile Gazelle, but continued to hold off on committing Noble Moon to the Wood.

 

"I still don't know about [Noble Moon]; we're going to wait until the last minute," she said of the Malibu Moon colt, who is owned by Treadway Racing Stable. "On entry day, if he's doing good, and we want to run, he will. I want to know he's jumping out of his skin and ready to go. I'm not going to push it. It's not a little, easy race, it's the Wood and it is a competitive race. We did lose a lot of time training, obviously, so if I feel we're 190 percent fit we'll run. If not, we'll wait for the next spot."
