Big News of the Week

The New York Racing Association added three stamina-testing stakes to its spring schedule at Belmont Park, including a pair for fillies and mares. The new races are the $100,000 Flat Out, a prep for the 1 1/2-mile Brooklyn Invitational June 11, at 1 3/8 miles on dirt May 15; the $200,000 Belmont Coronation Invitational at 1 15/16 miles on the grass for fillies and mares Thursday, June 9; and $150,000 Rags to Riches Invitational at 1 ½ miles on dirt for fillies and mares Friday, June 10.

NYRA acknowledged it was adding the races as “a small effort to bring back the importance of stamina in the breed.”

It 's true and it is very good what has been happening over the last few years to make this a reality.

This is a positive progressive innovation in exploring upper respiratory issues in horses, and hoping to combine with an ekg in the future will help immensely.
