Belmont Field Develops....


Report: Eight So Far

By Dick Downey

Per a report on TVG today, there are now eight known probable candidates for the Belmont Stakes.

In addition to the pair that raced in the first two legs of the Triple Crown, Exaggerator (second in Kentucky Derby, first in Preakness) and Lani (ninth Derby, fifth Preakness), the list includes Brody's Cause (seventh Derby), Cherry Wine (second Preakness), Creator (13th Derby), Destin (sixth Derby), Mo Tom (eighth Derby) and Suddenbreakingnews (fifth Derby).

Nyquist was of course declared out yesterday, and Steve Asmussen said a few days before the Preakness that Gun Runner (third Derby) would be pointed to a summer campaign.
