Dr. Schivel (Violence) breezed three-quarters of a mile in 1:13 flat at Santa Anita Saturday morning after which connections confirmed that the 5-year-old will make his next start in the GI Hill 'n' Dale Metropolitan H. at Belmont Park next Saturday.
The multiple Grade I winner, third in the 2022 G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen, returned from a near 14-month absence with a sharp allowance victory in Arcadia May 13. He was also under consideration for next Saturday's GII True North S. in New York.
“We think both races are very tough, but the Met Mile could do wonders for his stud career,” trainer Mark Glatt said. “We figured this will likely be the last chance for him. He's fresh, he's sharp off that comeback win we feel it's as good a time as any to give it a try.”
