Hall of Fame trainer Woody Stephens used the Grade 1 Met Mile as an unorthodox Belmont tuneup for Conquistador Cielo, who demolished his older foes by 7 ½ lengths in track record time. Six days later, he came back and beat Derby champion Gato del Sol by 14 lengths in the first of five straight Belmonts for Stephens.
