Belmont Stakes

Master of Hounds wins Animal Picture of the Week in The Telegraph

Cool, 21 years after Go And Go won the Belmont the Irish flag will once again be flying tonight in New York. Master Of Hounds returns to America after a creditable fifth in the Kentucky Derby where he shaped well producing a decent finishing kick. There was a lot to like. He handled the dirt and the step up in trip tonight will be to his advantage.

As a two year old he boasted very good form with the top juveniles in Europe prior to a run in the Breeders Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs last November.

The experience he has now will stand him in good stead in the this last leg of the Triple Crown. Expect another Irish win.
