“We have decided to pass on the Belmont,” Rice said in NYRA press notes. “Frankly, he didn’t perform at Pimlico. It was a flat effort on his part. We’ll just look for an easy race for him to get him back on track. It’s a long summer.”
Kid Cruz is likely to make his next start in the Easy Goer on the Belmont undercard or the Dywer at Belmont Park on July 5.
