Belmont: Bail Out the Cat scores


  Good-looking debut win by 2-year-old Bail Out the Cat (2nd, $3.80), a Rick Violette-trained colt who was pounded at the windows in the final minutes. The son of Tale of the Cat turned back pace pressure from Soldat around the turn, opened daylight into the stretch and scored in 57.83 seconds for the five-eighths. It was a chasm back to third-place finisher Pluck.

  Violette unveiled a number of juvenile debut winners at this meet last year, notably Worstcasescenario, who subsequently won the Adirondack at Saratoga.
