Blended Citizen Horse Profile

It took Blended Citizen five starts to break his maiden last year, and he did it on the turf. But the late 2015 foal has found his way in 2018. Trained by Doug O’Neil and based on the West Coast, Blended Citizen has a pair of graded stakes wins in 2018 first in the Jeff Ruby Steaks (G3) on the synthetic surface at Turfway Park and then in the 1 1/8 mile Peter Pan (G3) May 12 at Belmont Park. That recent win was a Belmont Stakes prep race in which he dug in under a drive to gain steadily on the three race favorites and then find his best gear to get up late for the victory. Blended Citizen is a big horse with a big stride, and his connections believe he’ll handle the longer distance at Belmont without issue. Blended Citizen is a son of the late Proud Citizen, who finished second in the 2002 Kentucky Derby and third in the Preakness Stakes. A hotly contested pace is likely needed for Blended Citizen to run down Justify and the top contenders in the Belmont, but Blended Citizen is capable of hitting the board with continued improvement off his good current form.
