Evening Attire, the Kelly family's hard-knocking 10-year-old contender, finished second.

Trainer Pat Kelly was about to take Evening Attire out of stakes competition, to try the 10-year-old gelding in a few allowance races or to pick spots in turf routes as a main-track-only entry.

II) at Belmont Park.
