Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey said that Orb will run in the 1 ½-mile Belmont if he breezes well Sunday. The Malibu Moon colt will go out at 6 a.m. with regular exercise rider Jennifer Patterson aboard.

Trainer Todd Pletcher will send out Revolutionary, Palace Malice, Overanalyze, Midnight Taboo and the filly Unlimited Budget in as-yet-to-be-determined squads at 6 a.m. and 8:45 a .m. on the main track. The first three are definite for Saturday’s race, with the status of Unlimited Budget and Midnight Taboo depends on how they work.

Incognito, who joined the Belmont field last week, will breeze after the second renovation break on the training track with jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard, said trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.
