Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Giacomo stretched his limbs on his first visit to the Hollywood Park main track Wednesday morning since arriving Sunday following a third-place finish in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I) in Baltimore on Saturday.
"He looked good," said trainer John Shirreffs, noncommittal about a Belmont Stakes (gr. I) rubber match on June 11 with Preakness winner Afleet Alex. "It's hard to say whether he will run. We just got him home. He's got to ship all the way across the country to get there."
Giacomo, stabled here year-round, finished second in the Hollywood Futurity (gr. I) in December behind unbeaten 2-year-old champion Declan's Moon.
