Aqueduct: Big Screen begins Westchester preparation

Big Screen on Monday had his first work since winning an allowance by 9 1/4 lengths on March 23.

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Big Screen worked four furlongs in 48.81 seconds Monday morning over Belmont Park’s main track, his first breeze since winning a second-level allowance race at Aqueduct on March 23 by 9 1/4 lengths.

Big Screen, a 4-year-old son of Speightstown, is being pointed to the Grade 3, $150,000 Westchester at Belmont on April 27.

“The horse is doing good, very impressive last start,” said Tom Albertrani, who trains Big Screen for Dogwood Stable. “We’re looking at the Westchester. Since he’s come back from being rested up, he’s come back and it looks like he might be on the improve.”

In three races this year, Big Screen has two wins and a second-place finish to Cigar Street, who came back to win the Grade 3 Skip Away at Gulfstream on March 30.
