Conquistador Cielo - 1982 Belmont Stakes

In an unusual training move, Woody Stephens ran Conquistador Cielo in the Met Mile against older horses a week before the Belmont Stakes. He won both - the first by 7 ½ lengths in track record time and the second, six days later, by 14 lengths. It was the first of five straight Belmonts for Stephens. Final time: 2:28 1/5 Owner: Henryk deKwiatkowski Trainer: Woody Stephens Jockey: Laffit Pincay, Jr.
