Pletcher has the numbers in Tremont Stakes


ELMONT, N.Y. – Salmanazar and Direct Dial made their debuts an hour apart at Keeneland on April 26, with both winning by daylight. Salmanazar recorded the faster time, but Direct Dial was visually impressive in his own right, and on Friday at Belmont Park, they will be among eight 2-year-old colts vying for early divisional supremacy on the East Coast when they meet in the $150,000 Tremont Stakes.
