Trainer Dale Romans believes Dullahan is the horse to beat
Before watching his colt work four furlongs in 45.97 seconds, trainer Dale Romans said he has the horse to beat in the Belmont Stakes, reports the Washington Post. Romans said after the workout that it reminded him of Dullahan’s work prior to the Blue Grass, a race he won easily on April 14.
“When he works like that, he runs big,” Romans said. “He looked like he was galloping, and then we got back to the barn he recovered quickly. He wasn’t blowing. I think he’s ready.”
In response to Dale Romans’ confidence he has the horse to beat in Dullahan, I’ll Have Another’s trainer Doug O’Neill said: “I respect (Dale) a ton, so if he says that, it’s scary. As confident as he is in his horse, I’m equally confident in my horse. I think we’re in really good shape.”
