A new jockey in Irad Ortiz, Jr. as John Velazquez is at Keeneland today and a new surface (first time on soft turf) didn’t seem to bother Ring Weekend in this afternoons Grade III Hill Prince Stakes at Belmont. This gelded son of Tapit has now won his second Grade III in succession and he is previously a Grade II winner. As last weekend with Main Sequence he had to sit out an enquiry near the finish line but the result was allowed to stand. Congratulations to West Point Thoroughbreds and St. Elias Stable.
