NEW YORK (AP) Liam's Map easily defeated three rivals in his season debut, the $85,500 allowance feature Friday at Belmont Park.
The gray 4-year-old extended his winning streak to four with a front-running victory. Liam's Map was fastest out of the gate, setting the pace with Confrontation second. Liam's Map sprinted clear at the top of the stretch, opening up by four lengths. Jockey Javier Castellano geared the colt down for the final furlong for an unchallenged 1 3-4 length victory.
The time was 1:34.48 for the mile.
Liam's Map paid $2.80 and $2.10 as the 2-5 favorite. Confrontation was second, returning $2.40.
Last Gunfighter was a distant third, followed by North Slope. There was no show wagering.
