On Saturday at Belmont Park, the featured race is the $200,000 Knickerbocker Stakes. Scheduled to be run at a mile and an eighth on the turf, the Grade 3 event has drawn a field of eleven colts and geldings.
Mexikoma has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 8-5 but is entered for the main track only. Of those entered on the turf, the favorite is War Dancer at odds of 7-2 for trainer Bill Mott. A five-year-old son of War Front, he has won four times and is a multiple graded stakes winner.

Though inconsistent this year, he is coming into this race off of a victory in the Commonwealth Cup Stakes (G2) at Laurel Park last time out. Jose Oritz will be in the irons and they will break from post position nine.
Middleburg trying for back to back wins
Also in the field at morning line odds of 9-2 is Midldeburg for trainer Christophe Clement. A five-year-old son of Lemon Drop Kid, he has been on the board in fifteen of sixteen starts and is trying to earn his second consecutive graded stakes victory.
