Belmont Stakes: Golden Soul has workout delayed

Golden Soul has been galloping steadily since the Kentucky Derby.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Trainer Dallas Stewart decided on Saturday to wait at least one more day to breeze his Kentucky Derby runner-up Golden Soul.

[BELMONT STAKES: Probable field and latest updates]

Golden Soul has been training steadily, but has not breezed, since finishing 2 1/2 lengths behind Orb in the May 4 Derby. Stewart has been hesitant to commit to a specific date for a workout, which he said “will be a real easy-half mile anyway. The horse is doing great in his gallops every day.”

Added Stewart: “I’m still working on his appetite. The work could be any day, when I feel that is 100 percent.”

Golden Soul is among a large pool of probable starters for the June 8 Belmont in New York.

I'm happy that this information is provided in a timely manner. This WAS my key entry for the Belmont. I'm at a lost now. They should have used red-out on his eyes, too! So disappointing...

He looks pretty wound up for a horse that's only going to gallop. Having a good mind may not be one of his strengths.

Its never a good sign when a horse does not have an appetite...usually if they are healthy and happy they will go right for the feed..so this is a sign that the derby wore him out a little. if he starts eating well in the next day or two it wont make a difference but the window is closing fast....if he does make it he will be one of the best bred horses to get the distance.

He may be the type that every race takes a lot out of him. In fact training might take a lot out of him but his ability overcomes it when he's right.

what no comments? No one is excited to see golden soul in the Belmont? Sounds like he's not eating very well by what Stewart says in this article. Not a positive.
