Category : News - Thu 23/10/2014 - 14:15 EDT

On Saturday at Belmont Park, some of the top sprinters on the East Coast are set to compete in the $200,000 Bold Ruler Handicap. The Grade 3 race will be run at seven-furlongs on the main track and has drawn a field of seven colts and geldings.

Topping the field at morning line odds of 2-1 is River Rocks for trainer John Terranova. The four-year-old son of Western Expression won his first three starts this year before falling a length short to Vyjack in the Kelso (G2) last time out. Joel Rosario will be aboard from post position six replacing Rajiv Maragh who is currently sidelined with an injury. The dark bay colt has won five of his eleven starts and will be trying to earn the first stakes win of his career.

Salutos Amigos going for first stakes win

Salutos Amigos has been tabbed as the second choice at morning line odds of 5-2 for trainer David Jacobson. The four-year-old gelding, last seen finishing fourth in the Vosburgh (G1), has won three of his ten starts this year and is another contender attempting to earn their first stakes victory. Cornelio Velasquez, aboard for an allowance win in April, will be back in the irons and they will break from post position four.

Romansh trying to rebound after Woodward flop

Also in the field is Romansh at morning line odds of 7-2 for trainer Tom Albertrani. Regular rider Jose Ortiz will be aboard carrying the familiar royal blue and white silks of Godolphin Racing. The four-year-old son of Bernardini, a $750,000 purchase as a yearling, has won four of his thirteen starts including two graded stakes races. He was last seen finishing eighth in the Woodward (G1) and will cut back to a sprint from post position two.
