Tapwrit rallies to win Belmont Stakes

Acilia Dean | 20 Giugno, 2017, 16:36

Tapwrit Trainer Todd Fletcher got his third career win at the Belmont after he trained Derby victor Always Dreaming.

The 2017 Belmont lost some of its global flavor when Japan's Epicharis, the UAE Derby's runner-up, was scratched after a morning vet check revealed a right front foot problem had failed to respond to treatment. Though Always Dreaming and Cloud Competing - the previous winners of the Derby and Preakness, respectively - didn't race, the absence of any clear favorite did make for an interesting outing in any case. Thomas said the four likeliest winners, in his opinion, are favorite Irish War Cry (7-2), Tapwrit (6-1), Senior Investment and Epicharis (12-1). The only problem with this horse is having the foot issue. "I think that's always an advantage".

"We really were hoping that Always Dreaming could take a shot at coming in for a Triple Crown try". He had been unable to train each of the last two days before the mile-and-a-half race.

A pre-race exam on Saturday morning revealed heat in Epicharis' hoof.

Belmont Park on Long Island and Saratoga in upstate NY were believed to be where all the champions trained and raced. The winner's share of the purse is $800,000 (88,236,744 yen). They won the 2016 Belmont with Creator. Especially with the Derby victor, the two-week turnaround between the Derby and the Preakness is a really short time for horses, but it's a pretty long 14 days for a horse trainer. I thought he ran very game, honestly.

Tapwrit finished sixth in the 20-horse Kentucky Derby. His best finish was third in the Belmont.

Belmont Park's deep, sandy track and sweeping turns can wipe out a tiring horse and benefit a closer able to negotiate the long stretch. "It was everything we talked about in the paddock before the race". "He should stay the trip". He showed up and took the Wood by over three lengths. This year, Epicharis won another race in Tokyo before losing for the first time by a nose to Thunder Snow in the UAE Derby in March.

Tapwrit had finished strongly in wet conditions at the Derby and proved well suited for the longer distance at the Belmont.

Epicharis is scheduled to ship back to Japan Thursday, June 15 at 4 a.m. "He breezed well last weekend, and I felt he needed to be here".

Hagiwara trained 2009 Japanese Derby victor Logi Universe, the only Group 1 victor so far in his career. Brands and Preakness Stakes brought an unsettling mix of excitement and anxiety for trainer Todd Pletcher.

"I was a lot more disappointed after the Derby, because I know what the horse is capable of, and [he] didn't show it on Derby day", Maragh said.

The road to the winner's circle in the Belmont Stakes ran through the Kentucky Derby - and Tampa Bay Downs in Oldsmar - even with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners skipping the final leg of the Triple Crown.

Swiss watchmaker Longines are the Official Timekeeper and Watch of the 2017 edition of the Triple Crown series, and owner, trainer and jockey were all presented with elegant Longines timepieces to honour their victory. "A big tsunami maybe".
