"Mr. Fantasy arrived at Belmont in good order and jogged soundly. His foot looks good so Mike went ahead and breezed him on Sunday morning at Belmont. Mr. Fantasy worked an easy four furlongs in 49:26 over the training track. The work was 26th of 61 at the distance. Mike is now pointing him toward the $60,000 Billy Redcoat Stakes on April 21st at Aqueduct. This race is a seven furlong overnight stake restricted to New York Breds. We should be a formidable threat. In an ideal world, Mike would have loved for the race to be a flat mile, but he thinks Mr. Fantasy will run well. We would like to use this race as a prep for the Met Mile, but we will wait and see how we run in the Billy Redcoat and also how the Met Mile shapes up. We know we have a talented colt, but the Met Mile is a notoriously tough race. We will see how things play out and keep our options open."
