With the Belmont Stakes in the rearview mirror after a classic stretch battle between eventual winner Essential Quality and Hot Rod Charlie, it is a good time for updates on all the runners from 2021's Triple Crown races.

All but one of the horses from the Kentucky Derby have returned to the track, whether for works or another race. The exception is Soup and Sandwich, who is recovering from a respiratory problem.

The June 5 Belmont was too recent for much to be known about the next moves for the runners. But trainer Brad Cox did give a goal for the winner.
