Racing Headlines

Exaggerator will breeze once before Belmont, Suddenbreakingnews continues race preparations

Preakness S. (G1) winner Exaggerator walked the shedrow at Pimlico on Thursday, one day after jogging two miles around the venue's main track as he awaits the June 11 Belmont S. (G1). Kentucky Derby (G1) champion Nyquist, third in the Preakness, is doing well according to trainer Doug O'Neill, who said, "He has no temperature right now, his blood looks good, so we're very happy..."

Grade 3 scorer Suddenbreakingnews is headed to the Belmont Stakes off a fifth-place finish in the Kentucky Derby, and the Donnie Von Hemle trainee worked five furlongs in 1:00.60 on Monday at Churchill Downs to ready for the 1 1/2-mile "Test of the Champion."

Dick Powell analyzed the Preakness S. (G1), saying the race played out as expected, in this week's Handicapping Insights.

Grade 2-placed Gift Box was the easiest of winners while making his belated three-year-old debut on Thursday at Belmont Park.
