The Street Is Closed

- THUMP! That's the sound of the market for seats for the Belmont after Carl Nafzger announced that the Derby winner will skip the race and point for the Travers instead.

Bloodhorse.com lists just five probables for the race - Curlin, Hard Spun, Imawildandcrazyguy, Tiago, and Slew's Tizzy. Rags to Riches anyone?

Pletcher really has to think about entering his filly. A small field with really only two possible winners in Hard Spun and Curlin.

I can not believe Nafzger said that if SS ran in the Belmont he would not have sufficient time to recover and prepare for the Travers. Last time I checked the Travers was in late August, meaning the horse would have two months to rest before the Jim Dandy or Haskell. Is two months not enough time? This horse must be pretty unsound, maybe that is why he only had two races between last November and this May.
