Belmont Stakes 2012: Dullahan Fresh To Make A Run

Trainer Dale Romans was initially upset that Dullahan was skipping The Preakness, as the colt was coming off a third-place finish in the Kentucky Derby and Romans felt the horse could make a push. With skipping the race however, it seems like Romans feels Dullahan will be more fresh than some of the other horses, giving the colt an advantage.

"I did want to run in the Preakness," Romans told Marty McGree of The Racing Form Saturday morning at Churchill Downs. "But Jerry said no, and in hindsight, I think he made the right call. We've got a fresh horse for the Belmont, and I couldn't be happier with how he's doing."

Dullahan is expected to be one of the top wagering choices for the Belmont right behind favorite I'll Have Another.
