CHARITABLE MAN OK AFTER RUNNING FOURTH IN BELMONT STAKES

Trainer Kiaran McLauglin, though disappointed with Charitable Man’s fourth-place finish in the Belmont, said the horse came back in relatively good shape.


“He got nicked up a little, but otherwise, he’s okay,” McLaughlin said. “I said before the race that I wouldn’t trade places with anyone, and I still feel that way. He is a nice horse. I think the race track had a speed bias and the complexion (of the race) changed a lot when Dunkirk went to the lead.”

McLaughlin said he would regroup and look to races like the Jim Dandy, Travers, or Haskell.
