Giacomo got stuck behind a wall of horses and was 10th on the turn into the stretch. It's amazing that he was able to finally get free and he was moving like a freight train to finish 3rd. The Belmont is a mile and a half (12 furlongs) and will suit his running style.
I think we will see a much smaller field in the Belmont. So far, none of the horses are committed to it. John Sherriffs usually takes at least 3 days to watch his horses after a big race before deciding a next move. Meanwhile, Giacomo is back in California. I saw him there on TVG yesterday, and he looked fantastic.
