Farmington Road

Farmington Road’s connections have earned Belmont Stakes success once before, as trainer Todd Pletcher and owners Robert La Penta and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners teamed up to win in 2017 with Tapwrit. LaPenta also owned 2008 Belmont hero Da’ Tara, who went gate-to-wire to spring a 38-1 upset.

Farmington Road, who arrives off a fourth-place finish in a division of the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby, owns one career win, breaking his maiden at third asking on January 12 over the main track at Tampa Bay Downs by 1 ¾ lengths.

The bay son of Quality Road will attempt to give his prolific multiple-champion producing sire his first victory as a stallion in an American Classic.

Pletcher has trained three Belmont Stakes winners with Rags to Riches (2007), Palace Malice (2013) and Tapwrit (2017). He will attempt his fourth Belmont Stakes victory, equaling the amount won by Max Hirsch, R W. Walden and D. Wayne Lukas, for whom he started as an assistant.
