Preservationist Wins the Suburban Stakes,(G2), at Belmont  

The Suburban serves as a steppingstone toward the $6 million Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic. Since both races are held over 1 1/4 miles (the same distance as the Kentucky Derby), the Suburban is an ideal race for older horses to test their stamina over North America’s classic distance.

Race 10. Suburban Stakes,(G2).  For four-year-old and up at 1 1/4 miles on dirt. Purse $700,000.
