Fly Down Info:

Owner(s): Richard C. Pell

Trainer: Nicholas P. Zito

Jockey: John Velazquez

Bred: USA

Pedigree: Mineshaft – Queen Randi by Fly So Free

Opening Odds:

According to oddsmakers at online sports book, Fly Down is 4/1 to win at Belmont Park on Saturday. He also opened at 4/1.

Post Position:

Fly Down drew the No. 5 post position on Wednesday, which is a good sign given the post’s previous history. The No. 5 post has won 13 times at the Belmont, which ties that No. 3 post for second-most wins at this race. Only the rail position has won more times (23).


Fly Down won the G2 Dwyer on May 8 at Belmont Park, which qualifies as a sharp prep. The 1 1/8 mile distance at the Dwyer should serve him well at the Belmont Stakes, although he finished ninth at the G2 Louisiana Derby on March 27, which shows some inconsistency on his part. His jockey, John Velazquez, has won 24 meet tiles in New York, which is a good sign for Fly Down’s chances. He also won his only Triple Crown race at the Belmont while aboard Rags to Riches in 2007. This is a solid pairing on paper and given how Fly Down won at Belmont Park less than a month ago, it’s no reason he’s one of the favorites to win on Saturday.
