||Aptitude named early favorite to win Belmont |
With Fusaichi Pegasus and Red Bullet out, Aptitude is the favorite, although the horse has won only once in six career starts.
||Belmont Stakes running on close to empty|
It will be just the 11th time since 1919 that the 1 1/2-mile Belmont is to be run without the Derby and Preakness winners.
||Unshaded to skip the Belmont Stakes|
Unshaded will skip the race because the colt, the son of 1990 Kentucky Derby winner Unbridled, still has much to learn.
