^ There was a $116 winner at Belmont on Saturday. Exacta paid $546.

Street Brawl, a son to Street Sense, won over the weekend at Belmont with Rosie/Pletcher. His record is 2-for-2.

4th-BEL, $77,000, Alw, Opt. Clm. ($75,000), NW1X, 3yo, 1 1/16m, 1:42, ft.
STREET BRAWL (c, 3, Street Sense--Regally Appealing {GSW, $296,925}, by Valid Appeal) was offered up at relatively generous 5-1 odds at first asking at Aqueduct Apr. 14, but rewarded those who backed him with a sharp score going 6 1/2 panels. Aiming to remain unbeaten in his first go at a route, the slight 8-5 choice was away alertly underneath Rosie Napravnik and set pressured :23.52 and :46.99 splits as Inflation Target (Tapit) pressed to his outside. Those two continued into the lane when a sharp left-handed crack by Napravnik prompted Street Brawl to veer out and knock Inflation Target. All parties quickly righted themselves, however, and Street Brawl cruised home 1 1/4 lengths clear as Inflation Target gave futile chase. Stewards look at the bumping incident but let the result stand. In the last 60 days, Napravnik has won aboard five of the 11 Todd Pletcher-trained horses she's ridden, according to stats. Sales history: $50,000 yrl '10 KEESEP; $380,000 2yo '11 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $82,200

Desormeaux has been replaced on Dullahan for the Belmont. At last check, Castellano is the leading jockey by earnings this season. Dullahan could be a spoiler.

Kent Desormeaux has been replaced by Javier Castellano as Dullahan (Even The Score)'s jockey in the Belmont Stakes, according to Jerry Crawford, President of Donegal Racing. Desormeaux failed a breathalyzer test at Belmont Park on Friday, losing his ride aboard Preakness entrant Tiger Walk (Tale of the Cat).
