Pleasant
Colony
runs for
Crown
NEW YORK (AP)-Pleasant Colony,
considered a good but not outstanding 3-
year-old earlier in the year, before he
teamed up with trainer John Campo,
will try to become thoroughbred
racing's 12th Triple Crown champion
today by winning the 1 -mile Belmont
Stakes.
Campo says one of his strengths as a
trainer is his ability to evaluate horses,
but that at first he couldn't evaluate
Pleasant Colony because "I didn't have
a horse in the bar that could keep step
with him."
No horse in a race has been able to
keep step with Pleasant Colony since he
came under Campo's care following a
fifth-place finish in the Florida Derby.
Among those who will try to make
Pleasant Colony the 10th Kentucky
Derby-Preakness winner to fail in the
Belmont are Paristo, third in the
Preakness; Bold Ego, 10th in the Derby
and second in the Preakness; Wood-
chopper, second in the Derby and 11th
in the Preakness; and Tap Shoes, a
highly regarded Derby contender who
finished 14th and then skipped the
Preakness.

PLEASANT COLONY TAKES a morning jog yesterday morning, as he went through his last workout before today's
Belmont Stakes. The colt, if successful in his bid for the Belmont title, will be only the twelfth horse in history to have
won the fabled Triple Crown.
