Massimo will back up tomorrow at Belmont. Unfortunately, last week he had no luck. As reported by the Stewards, he pulled hard through the early and middle stages, was steadied at the 650 metre mark and was unable to obtain clear running for the majority of the straight.
Tomorrow he drops back to a 3YO 62+ handicap over 1400 metres and will have to carry 60.5 kilograms after the three-kilogram claim of apprentice Beaux Banovic – Edwards.
Although it is a competitive race with a number of genuine chances, we are expecting Big Mo to perform well.
