Gatsas Stable's Gander, one of the leading New York-breds in training, breezed five furlongs over Belmont's main track in 1:00 3/5 on Friday.
Woodward (gr. I) runner-up Gander came out of the race with a slight "bug," but has recovered according to trainer John Terranova.
Amerman Racing Stables' Lido Palace can join Sword Dancer, Kelso, Forego, Slew o' Gold and Cigar as the only horses to win consecutive Woodward Stakes (gr. I).
