New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner's Kentucky Derby prospect Bellamy Road, with Javier Castellano aboard, wins the sixth race at Gulfstream Park.
Kinsman Stable's Bellamy Road rocketed onto the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) scene Saturday when he ran off to a 15 3/4-length victory in a one-mile allowance race at Gulfstream Park in his first start for new trainer Nick Zito.

The son of Concerto went right to the front and kept increasing his lead with every stride. Bellamy Road was ridden by Javier Castellano and won under a hand ride. He covered the mile in a sharp 1:35 4/5.

Bellamy Road captured his first two career starts under the care of Michael Dickinson, including a win in the Miller Genuine Draft Cradle Stakes (gr. III). An injury suffered in the Lane's End Breeders' Futurity (gr. I) sidelined the colt, who was turned over to Zito by principle owner George Steinbrenner about two months ago.
