Trainer Shug McGaughey watched Saturday's Kentucky Cup "day of champions" on TVG from his Belmont Park office in New York.

Dollar Bill, who will be reunited with jockey Pat Day, is the starting highweight at 117 pounds.

Déjà Vu For Point Given As He Draws Outside Post Position

There were no surprises Wednesday when nine 3-year-olds were entered for Saturday's $1-million Belmont Stakes, third leg of Thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown.

Kentucky Derby winner Monarchos galloped at Pimlico Racecourse Monday morning as he continues preparations for Saturday's Preakness Stakes, second leg of the Triple Crown.

At Churchill Downs, trainer Bob Baffert worked his two Preakness candidates, Point Given and Congaree, and Dallas Stewart reported Dollar Bill is on track after his workout.

Still No Rider For A P Valentine

Still No Rider For A P Valentine

Nick Zito, trainer of A P Valentine, likely will have to do some last-minute recruiting for a jockey, after it was announced Friday that Dollar Bill will point for the Preakness Stakes, and regular rider Pat Day will be aboard. Zito thought he had secured Day's services, but when Dollar Bill popped into the picture, Day popped out of the picture for A P Valentine.

Dollar Bill Added to Preakness Field

Dollar Bill, this year's hard-luck horse, will run in the Preakness Stakes if he works well at Churchill Downs Sunday or Monday, trainer Dallas Stewart said Friday. The son of Peaks and Valleys, who has gained fame this spring by having his own website, will ship to Baltimore on Wednesday. Pat Day again will ride.
