Lukas: Dublin will not run in Belmont Stakes

(Edited Churchill Downs report)

Trainer D. Wayne Lukas said Thursday at Churchill Downs that Dublin will not run in the 142nd Belmont Stakes on June 5. That means that  no horse will have run in all three Triple Crown races this year.

Lukas said that withdrawing the colt “wasn’t an easy decision, because he’s really doing good.”

Lukas said that the son of Afleet Alex ”has had five races in 12 weeks” and he wanted to give the colt “a little break” before gearing up for races this summer such as the Haskell, Jim Dandy or Travers and finally the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 6 at Churchill.

    Dublin is a magnificent racehorse. Seabiscuit was thought to look a little like a plowhorse. Let’s watch the Haskell or Travers. Dublin will rise again.

  2. RICK IN N.O. says:

    My goodness, he needed a little break. I hate to say it, but there’s a plow horse needed somewhere in Kansas. I hope I’m wrong, but it sounds like his name is Dublin.
