Brother O'Connell's Victory at Belmont
Brother O'Connell finished 1st at Belmont Park on June 18, 2015 in Race 9. He established the front shortly after the start and showed the way in hand along the inside.
The question now is what's next for Brother. The NY Bred NW1 at 1 1/8th miles is about four Rag points easier than the open company NW1 at 1 3/8ths miles. There is no doubt Brother would do better at the longer distance, but whether he would do four points better is another question. We'll see how he comes out of the race.
