DOWN THE STRETCH

• Jack Christopher will put his 3-0 record on the line in the $400,000 Grade I Woody Stephens, one of eight graded stakes at Belmont Park on Saturday. The Woody Stephens, named for the late New York-based trainer who won five consecutive Belmont Stakes from 1982-86, drew a field of six. Jack Christopher has won his three starts, including the Grade I Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park last fall, by a combined 15 1/4 lengths. The 1-2 morning-line favorite, he goes into the Woody Stephens off a 3 3/4-length victory in the Grade II Pat Day Mile at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby day.

• The speedy Brickyard Ride, fifth as the 1-5 favorite in the Triple Bend Stakes at Santa Anita on May 29, sustained a quarter crack to a hind foot and will be sidelined for an indefinite period. “We sent him to San Luis Rey Downs for treatment in a hyperbaric chamber for 10 days, then we’ll bring him back,” trainer Craig Lewis told Santa Anita publicity. “He looks pretty good right now. Hopefully, he’ll be better and we’ll try to resume training.” Brickyard Ride, a California-bred son of Clubhouse Ride, was seeking his fifth consecutive stakes victory in the Triple Bend, which was won by American Theorem.
