Belmont: Haynesfield wires Jockey Club Gold Cup


  Haynesfield (10th, $17.00) went to the front and never looked back, cruising through the stretch under a hand ride from Ramon Dominguez to win the Grade 1, $750,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup by four lengths over 4-5 favorite Blame.

  Haynesfield, trained by Steve Asmussen, ran the 1 1/4 miles in 2:02.48 on a fast track.

  Blame, who attracted $423k of the $507k show pool, was two lengths clear of Fly Down, who in turn was six lengths clear of Hold Me Back in fourth.

  Rail Trip and Tranquil Manner completed the order of finish.
