Mind Your Biscuits returned to the winner's circle with a decisive 3 ½-length score in the G2 Belmont Sprint Championship last Saturday.

Mind Your Biscuits was one of two graded stakes winners on Saturday for jockey Joel Rosario, giving him a total of 11 this year. As a result, Rosario takes over the fifth spot in the AGS jockey standings. Rosario also piloted Practical Joke to victory in the G3 Dwyer Stakes.
