Bolo has been installed as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-2 in the wide open race for trainer Carla Gaines. A dark bay son of Temple City, he has won three of his seven starts, all of which have come on the lawn. After a twelfth-place finish in the Kentucky Derby (G1), he returned to his preferred surface and won an allowance race at Santa Anita. Rafael Bejarano will be back aboard and they will break from post position two.
Consistent Divisidero going for two in a row at Belmont
Second choice at 4-1 on the morning line is Divisidero for trainer William “Buff” Bradley. A bay son of Kitten’s Joy, he was purchased for $250,000 as a yearling and has won three of his four starts. He was last seen winning the Pennine Ridge Stakes by a neck at Belmont Park and has been training forwardly at Churchill Downs since that race. Regular rider Rafael Hernandez will be aboard and they will break from post position three.
First United States start for Postulation
Also in the field at morning line odds of 10-1 is Postulation for trainer Dermot Weld. A gelded son of Harlan’s Holiday bred and owned by Juddmonte Farms, he has been on the board in seven of his eight starts and was a three-time winner in Ireland. He will be making his first start since being gelded following his most recent victory. Pat Smullen, aboard for all of his races, will be aboard and they will break from post seven.
