Note: It’s unclear what the exact Beyer Speed Figures were for three of Golden Glider’s races; however, we know his career-best BSFs came in his last two races. Therefore, we know his November, February and March races were less than 87, producing one of the weaker resumes on paper in this field.

The Word On Golden Glider
On Sunday, Golden Glider worked four furlongs in 49.94 seconds, speeding up for the final quarter mile in 23.39 seconds. It was his final breeze before the Belmont Stakes.
Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse, who won the 2019 Belmont Stakes with Sir Winston, said he was pleased with the work.
“I thought he worked really well. He settled early, which is what you want out of a Belmont horse, and flew home,” Casse said.
“I’m not worried about the mile and a half, it’s just how long it’s going to take him,” said Casse, with a laugh. “He’s a one-paced type of horse, so I’m hoping he’ll have a similar trip like Sir Winston. In his previous races, Sir Winston used to come from the clouds but in the Belmont, Joel Rosario kept him close enough and I could see the same thing happening Saturday with Dylan.”
