On Oct. 1 Forego will run again at Belmont in the Marlboro, and a victory in that race will push him over $2 million. He has now been favored in 27 straight races, but trivia buffs may be more interested in another statistic: in his last 13 stakes races Forego has conceded a total of 2,057 pounds to his opponents.
Those who saw his latest show of strength came away wondering just how much weight he will pick up when he goes after the money mark. He has won carrying 131 pounds, 132 (twice), 133 (twice), 134 (three times), 135, 136 and 137. How high can up be?
