Tonalist won the Belmont Stakes at odds of 9-1 versus 10 other 3-year-olds.
Saratoga Springs, NY (SportsNetwork.com) -
Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist tops a field of seven 3-year-olds for Saturday's $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga Race Course. The 1 1/8-mile stakes is the final local prep for the $1 million Travers on August 23.
Trained by Christophe Clement for Robert Evans, Tonalist will again be ridden by Joel Rosario and break from post 4.
"We have him in the Jim Dandy, but we also want him to make the Travers afterwards, so we're just trying to keep a little bit of room to work after the Jim Dandy," Clement said during a conference call on Tuesday.
