Lite Light, who stamped herself as the nation's top 3-year-old filly when she won the Kentucky Oaks by 10 lengths, will race next in the June 8 Belmont Stakes, trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said yesterday.
Hollendorfer said the decision was made Monday night in a meeting with Lite Light's owners, the family of rap star M.C. Hammer. They'll have to pay a $50,000 supplemental entry fee.
It was the owners who suggested the Belmont following Lite Ligh's victory in the 1 1/2 -mile Kentucky Oaks.
