Belmont: Score another one for The Giant Killer


  Le Grand Cru (8th, $56.50) caught pacesetter Ironman Jon approaching the sixteenth pole to upset the 82nd running of the Westchester for trainer Allen Jerkens, who turned 81 last week.

  Ridden by Cornelio Velasquez, Le Grand Cru had gone winless from four starts at Gulfstream during the winter, but has now won his last three starts in New York, having taken the Kelso and the Bold Ruler last fall.

  Convocation, the 5-2 second choice trained by Jimmy Jerkens, was up for second in the final strides to complete a father-son exacta worth $204.50.

  Heading into the nightcap, the pick-6 has already carried over into Saturday's card.
