Coming in at +1200 odds is Michael Maker trained Stately Victor who will be returning to compete in the last leg of the Triple Crown. Stately Victor raced in the May 1st Kentucky Derby but finished in 8th place after getting stuck behind a wall of horses. Owners Thomas and Jack Conway are really hoping that their horse will have a good start out of post 9 and will be able to keep up his pace for the full 1 ½ mile Belmont Stakes this Saturday.
“The Derby wasn’t a bad go. He had a nice little run on the turn,” trainer Mike Maker said of Stately Victor’s performance at the Kentucky Derby. “He’s always given us the impression he wants added ground. It’s something we had in the back of our mind for a while.”
Stately Victor’s last win was in the April 10th Blue Grass-G1 with jockey Alan Garcia. Although Garcia rode the colt in the Kentucky Derby, the jockey will look to repeat his Blue Grass win in the 2010 Belmont Stakes and get the horse’s first win on a dirt surface.
“Time doesn’t mean anything to us; it doesn’t mean anything in the race. He’s happy, and he did it the way he always works.” Michael Maker stated. “I thought he ran a credible race in the Derby, and I think you throw him out at your own risk. Compared to some of the other horses, if he fires his Blue Grass race back, he’s going to be competitive. I think if he runs his Derby race back, he’s going to be competitive.”
