Stay Put may get shot at Belmont


Stay Put, winner of a second-level allowance route that served as the Derby Day opener, is possible for the June 5 Belmont Stakes, said trainer Steve Margolis.

"We'll see how everything shakes out from the Preakness and go from there," said Margolis. "The other option is the Northern Dancer here a week later, but first we'll take a long look at the Belmont. The horse looked pretty good winning the other day."

Stay Put, a Broken Vow colt bred and owned by the Richard Klein family of Louisville, now has won three two-turn races. He finished fifth in both previous stakes tries, the Risen Star and Louisiana Derby, both at Fair Grounds.

Margolis, who enjoyed a very productive winter at Fair Grounds, got off to a good start at this meet by winning with 5 of his first 15 starters.
