Lukas: Dublin will not run in Belmont StakesMay 20th, 2010 | By TrackSide View | Category: Triple Crown
(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.
