I haven't heard any news of a Belmont cancellation for July 8, so I assume that this one is a go. Interestingly, 2 of the fillies entered for Wednesday are entered in this one versus the boys.

Able Bellamy (Bellamy Road - Double Entendre by Double Negative), who has been working at Aqueduct, debuts at 5.5 furlongs at Belmont, taking on fellow New York-breds. His last work was on June 25, when he went 4 furlongs in :47.71 from the gate. He is out of the winning mare Double Entendre, who was placed at 2. Double Entendre has produced 2 winners, including Double Understand, who was a winner at 2, and grade I stakes-placed in Puerto Rico that season.

Fillies Spa Sunrise (Eddington - Beautiful Sunshine by Gilded Time) and Princess Zip (City Zip - Berkshire Princess by Cherokee Run) are a Wesley Ward-trained entry. Eibar Coa is named to ride on both, so it is probable that one will scratch. Spa Sunrise is unraced.

Beautiful Sunshine, dam of Spa Sunrise, is a half sister to 5 winners, including grade III winner Bet On Sunshine.
