The task before the horses entered in the 2012 Belmont Stakes is a simple one: figure out how on Earth to beat I'll Have Another, who is angling for the first Triple Crown in more than 30 years. Working fast in practice might help.
The horse doing that in final workouts on Sunday morning was Dullahan, who breezed four furlongs in 45.97 seconds and two furlongs in 22.2 seconds, then galloped out five furlongs in 58.91 seconds.
According to BloodHorse.com, Dullahan "breezed so easily it looked as if he was going much slower than he actually was." That's a good sign, probably.
