Empire Maker is scheduled to work Tuesday morning, according to Frankel.
"I thought Funny Cide ran very well, but I didn't think Peace Rules handled the track," Frankel said. "I saw his one bad race up at Saratoga was in the slop."Despite Peace Rules' disappointing Preakness finish, the day was not a total loss for Frankel. At Belmont, Wild Spirit was an impressive 3 ½-length winner of the Shuvee at odds of 10-1. It was the Chilean's first start in North America.
