With a result quite similar to last fall’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1), the 2-year-old champion Essential Quality outlasted Hot Rod Charlie to win “The Test of the Champion,” Saturday’s $1.5 million Belmont Stakes (G1) presented by NYRA Bets at Belmont Park.
Ridden by Luis Saez, Essential Quality’s win was his second of the year and followed his first career defeat, a close fourth-place finish as the favorite in the Kentucky Derby (G1) – though he may eventually be placed third, pending the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission’s decision whether or not to disqualify the winning horse. Trained by Brad Cox, the Godolphin homebred Tapit colt’s record now stands at 7-6-0-0 with $3,215,144 earned to date.
