Incognito Considered for Belmont

5/27/2013

Incognito, last seen running fifth in the Grade II Peter Pan, is being considered for the Belmont Stakes, according to trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

The colt breezed four furlongs in :50.01 (66/89) Monday.

“He worked well, and Jimmy Bell (President of Darley America) was here, so we’re going to talk about it in the next day or two and see if we give it a shot,” said McLaughlin. “The main reason we’re even talking about it is that he truly wants a mile and a half, and you don’t get many opportunities.”

Also on Monday, trainer Chad Brown proclaimed Peter Pan runner-up Saint Vigeur “doubtful” for the Belmont Stakes after the Smart Strike colt developed a quarter crack.

“Number one, he popped a quarter crack, so first and foremost I have to get that addressed,” Brown said. “Number two, we were always kind of on the fence anyway. We like the horse, we think he’s a nice horse and he ran good in the Peter Pan, but I don’t know if he’s quite ready for a grade I. Those factors and the quarter crack kind of made our decision for us. I’d say I’m 90 percent sure I’m not going to run.”
