galloped 1 1/2 miles under exercise rider Emundo Cedeno. Trainer Gary Stute said, "We'll probably blow him out 1/8 mile, let him gallop to the 1/8 pole (on Friday) and then let him roll. The other day (1:05 for 5/8) he was a little lackadaisical down the lane. I want him to know when he hits that 1/8 pole it means business. Even if I run second to (Rachel Alexandra) and win the Belmont – that's the good thing about her being a filly – I should still get 3-year-old of the year, 3-year-old colt."
