The Bad Boy Of Belmont

The Bad Boy Of Belmont


GOING TO A PLACE WITH BRIGHT
LIGHT WHERE THEY COULD EASE A
HEADACHE ONCE YOU HAVE ONE.
THANK YOU.
THIS WEEKEND THE FINAL
JEWEL OF THE TRIPLE CROWN IS
IN OUR BACKYARD.
THE BELMONT STAKES FEATURING
THE BEST 3-YEAR-OLDS IN THE
WORLD INCLUDING ONE HORSE
THAT’S MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF
ON PERSONALITY ALONE.
CBS 2’S STEVE OVERMYER HAS THE
STORY.
Reporter: IT’S 5:30 IN THE
MORNING AT BELMONT PARK.
TRIPLE CROWN THOROUGHBREDS
FILL THE TRACK.
EXCEPT FOR ONE.
LANI.
HIS TRAINERS ISOLATE HIM FROM
OTHER HORSE FOR A REASON.
HE DOESN’T LIKE OTHER
HORSES.
NO GOOD.
[ NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE ]
Reporter: WHEN LANI FINALLY
SHOWS HIS FACE, HE SHOWS HIS
PERSONALITY.
HE IS EXCITABLE AND
TEMPERAMENTAL.
BOTH DESCRIPTIONS EARN HIM THE
LABEL THE BAD BOY OF BELMONT.
[ NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE ]
Reporter: BRED IN KENTUCKY
BUT TRAINED IN JAPAN, LANI IS
THE HAWAIIAN WORD FOR HEAVEN.
HIS DEVILISH SIDESHOWS IN HIS
UNRULY DISPOSITION BUT IT COULD
ALSO BE HIS SAVING GRACE.
THE TRAINER HAS CHOSEN TO WORK
OUT LANI’S ENERGY BY RUNNING
HIM.
A LOT.
WHILE OTHER HORSES JUST DO ONE
LAP AROUND BELMONT, LANI RUNS
FOUR EVERY DAY.
[ NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE ]
Reporter: AND IT’S THAT
EXTRA CONDITIONING THAT’S
EXPECTED TO PAY OFF IN THE
TRIPLE CROWN’S LONGES THE
BELMONT STAKES DRAW WAS THIS
MORNING AND HE IS RUNNING FROM
THE TENTH GATE.
HE IS THE SECOND FROM THE LAST
IN BETTING.
ORNERY.
YOU SAID HE IS A BAD BOY.
IS IT LIKE A ROCK STAR TRASHES
A HOTEL ROOM, HE IS TRASHING
THE STABLE?
THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE TO
KEEP HIM ISOLATED.
OTHER HORSES NOTICED IT.
HOW DOES THIS MAKE YOU
FEEL?
YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED A LOT OF
THINGS.
THEY SAID — LONNIE, THEY
SAID THEY WANT YOU UP THERE
FOR STEVE’S STORY.
WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT?
YOU HAD TO BE LAUGHING.
SO LONNIE HE’S A LITTLE
CANTANKEROUS.
A LITTLE ORNERY.
IF YOU START ACTING UP
