Belmont Park: Gantry sets course record


Gantry made a most impressive turf debut, rallying past odds-on favorite Higher Court to win a first-level turf allowance by 3 1-2 lengths. In the process, Gantry established a new inner turf course record for the distance, 1:06.87, eclipsing the previous mark of 1:07.05 set five years aggo by Weigelia.

 Gantry is a 4-year-old gelded son of Pulpit out of the New York-bred turf stakes winning mare Rhum. He had not run since last Nov. 8 when he won a maiden dirt race at Parx.

Ganry is owend by Black Swan Stable and trained by Mike Hushion.
