Mr. Hot Stuff
came out for his first gallop over Belmont Park's main track Friday morning. Trainer Eoin Harty said, "He actually handled it very well, but he wasn't surrounded by nine other horses." Thursday, Mr. Hot Stuff went out on the training track and Harty had been hoping the rain would cease this morning. Instead, it rained even harder than it did Thursday. "It must be retribution for my past sins," he said, "so I expect a flood of epic proportions."
