The May 30 workout at Belmont Park for Guyana Star Dweej was cut short and the Eddington colt was credited with a :50.03 four-furlong breeze.
Owner/trainer Doodnauth Shivmangal planned to have Guyana Star Dweej breeze five furlongs, but the colt was pulled up earlier than expected by jockey Eddie Castro.
“For some reason, the jockey didn’t let him go around the turn,” said Shivmangal. “We planned to go five-eighths, but we didn’t get the full work in. But it’s OK. He’s not a work horse. He loafs in the morning, but in the afternoon he’s a different horse. He came back, we scoped him, he scoped fine.”
Shivmangal said Guyana Star Dweej is tentatively scheduled to breeze on June 6 or 7, at which time he will decide on whether to run him in the June 9 Belmont Stakes (gr. I).
“I want him to do it fast,” said Shivmangal. “I’ll put him in company, and from there I’ll make my final decision. I would love to run him in the Belmont.”
The winner of one of nine lifetime starts, Guyana Star Dweej is also under consideration for the 1 1/16-mile Easy Goer overnight stakes on the Belmont Stakes undercard.
