New York-Rich Strike seeks to back up his astonishing upset at the 154th Belmont Stakes Kentucky Derby.

A horse trained by Eric Reed, powered from behind the field of 20 horses to win at 80-1 odds under Churchill Downs jockey Sony Leon.

He benefited from the Kentucky Derby’s fast pace, but Reed admitted that he might not be able to sit far away from the pace again.

But he said the way the foal was training, he didn’t think it would be a problem.

After pulling the fourth post, Rich Strike became the third fastest choice at 7-2.

Modni Goal, the fifth-placed Wood Memorial winner in Derby, was second in the 5-2.

We the People, saddled by French-born trainer Rodolph Bresset, was set as an early favorite of the 2,400-meter race at Belmont Park in New York.

We the People, one of the two Colts in the field of eight horses that didn’t start in the Derby Stakes or Preakness Stakes, was priced 2-1 after pulling Gate 1. -AFP
