Another Filly in the Belmont?

May 2, 2013: Unlimited Budget gallops the morning before the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs.

As usual, Todd Pletcher has a stable full of quality horses. He’s also got a few possible contenders for the Belmont Stakes on June 8. One of these just happens to be the filly, Unlimited Budget, for owner Mike Repole.

Unlimited Budget is a daughter of Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, and the only loss on her resume is a 3rd in the Kentucky Oaks. She’s never raced at Belmont or at the 1 ½ mile distance, but none of the other probable entries have run that far either. I can’t wait to see the list of final entries next week!

Mr. Pletcher’s lone Belmont win came in 2007 with the filly Rags to Riches, so you can never count out the girls. To top things off, it appears that Rosie Napravnik might get the mount on Unlimited Budget, which would make them quite a popular pair.
