Virginia-bred Quality Road jogged this morning to test his injured quarter cracks at Belmont Park in New York.
Quality Road, the Florida Derby winner, jogged 1¾ miles on Belmont's training track. Ian McKinlay, the foot specialist who is treating the colt, told owner Ned Evans: "No blood, he's sound. You can't ask for more than that."
McKinlay said he would put a fresh patch on the quarter crack on Quality Road's right front foot on Saturday afternoon, and insert a drain. Quality Road also has an older quarter crack on his right rear foot.
Quality Road is now scheduled to gallop at Belmont on Sunday, and work on Monday. If he progresses satisfactorily, he will travel to Churchill Downs on Tuesday, trainer Jimmy Jerkens said.
