Final Plans Made for Real Quiet
Real Quiet will go five furlongs Tuesday at Churchill Downs in his final workout for Saturday’s Belmont Stakes.
Trainer Bob Baffert said that Real Quiet will be flown to New York Wednesday, arriving at his barn at Belmont Park by mid-morning.
Dispelling rumors that he wasn’t doing well after winning the Preakness, Real Quiet worked five furlongs Thursday in a sharp 59 4/5 seconds. “That’s the Real Quiet I know,” Baffert said. “He had some down time after the Preakness, but he was full of energy in that workout. He was hitting on all cylinders.”
