Belmont-Bound Barber Road Drills Five Furlongs From Gate At Churchill

Barber Road

WSS Racing's Kentucky Derby ((G1) sixth-place finisher Barber Road had his final serious tune up at Churchill Downs on Saturday prior to shipping to New York for the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes (G1) with a five-furlong move in 1:00.80 in company with A Little Wild (five furlongs, 1:01.20).

The late-running Barber Road popped out of the Churchill Downs schooling gate at 7:30 a.m. (ET) and cruised through early fractions of :24.60, :36, and :48.20. The gray son of Race Day galloped out in front of his stablemate through six furlongs in 1:14, according to clocker Pete Vestal.

This was Barber Road's first gate work since June, 20, 2021 where he went a half-mile in :48.60.
