THE other Grade 1 on the Belmont card was the Manhattan Handicap over 10 furlongs on turf and it went to Instilled Regard, a Chad Brown-trained, five-year-old son of Arch who was recording the first Grade 1 victory of his career.

Blocked behind horses coming into the straight as stable companion Rockemperor surged to the lead, Instilled Regard and Irad Oritz Jr found daylight following Rockemperor’s path and the colt accelerated between horses, posting a 22.31sec final two furlongs to nail Rockemperor by a neck. Sadler’s Joy, second last year, took third.
