Ritchey originally had planned to ship the Preakness winner to Long Island today for the June 11 Belmont Stakes. The departure date will be delayed until New York Racing Association officials have control of the situation.
One week after his victory, Afleet Alex jogged one mile and galloped two miles on the Pimlico oval this morning.
Meanwhile, the betting numbers for Preakness day continue to soar, as the Maryland Jockey Club released the final numbers.
Adding figures from simulcasting and the Preakness-Pimlico Special Double, the final handle figure is $91,028,704, including $63,230,573 on the Preakness.
