Up Close at Belmont with Stay Put
At Belmont Park, Stay Put went an easy half-mile just after the renovation break under exercise rider Loren Diego, with NYRA clockers catching the chestnut colt in 50.62. "I liked the way he breezed this morning,' said Diego, who is supervising Stay Put's Belmont preparations until trainer Steve Margolis arrives Monday evening. "The main thing is to keep him happy, keep him fresh. I think he's been handling the track well since he's been here." Winner of an optional claimer at Churchill Downs on Derby Day, Stay Put arrived at Belmont Park on Thursday, galloping over the main track twice prior to Sunday's move. According to Diego, Stay Put will jog a mile on Monday, walk or jog on Tuesday, and gallop into the race. "I think a mile-and-a-half suits him," said Diego. "It's going to help him because he comes from off the pace."
