Exaggerator Doing Well Monday
By Dick Downey
Trainer Keith Desormeaux said Exaggerator is being rested and is doing well two days after his win of the Preakness.
“He didn’t do anything today but walk,” said Desormeaux on Monday. “We’ll probably go back to the track tomorrow morning.”
Desormeaux said he plans to keep Exaggerator at Pimlico before shipping to New York on Sunday to prepare for the June 11 Belmont Stakes.
Nyquist, the beaten Preakness favorite, is scheduled to leave Pimlico Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning.
