Triple Crown contender American Pharoah galloped 1 3/16 miles for exercise rider Jorge Alvarez Friday morning at Churchill Downs. It was his second day on the track after being given four days off following last Saturday's Preakness Stakes. Trainer Bob Baffert has said the colt will not have a timed workout at Belmont Park, where he is expected to arrive three or four days before the June 6 Belmont Stakes ... Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin confirmed that Frosted, who was fourth in the Derby, will run in the Belmont.
