Belmont: Newfound Desert hangs on

Email

  Newfound Desert (5th, $12.00) grabbed the early lead under Jose Lezcano, and held on to wire a $25,000 turf sprint despite drifting late and carrying out Hey Babe and Tiger Willie.

  Third ship-in winner of the meet (from five starters) sent in by Fair Hill-based trainer Michael Matz.
