Flintshire goes for new trainer at less-than-ideal distance


ELMONT, N.Y. – Slumber won the 2015 Manhattan Stakes by almost three lengths, and he’s back to try again Saturday with good form from the rest of 2015 and an encouraging comeback run May 7 in the Grade 1 Turf Classic. Those credentials sound strong, yet Slumber is a 10-1 shot on Belmont’s morning line for the Grade 1, $1 million Manhattan, which says all you need to know about this race.
