Gronkowski: A fever knocked him out of training in the weeks leading up to the Kentucky Derby, so he instead bids for the 12-furlong Belmont Stakes without having raced since March 30. Not only does the Kentucky-bred, British-raced traveler have to answer the layoff question, but he must do so racing a full half-mile farther than he’s ever tried and while racing on dirt for the first time.

Gronkowski has won four straight, but it’s extremely hard to envision another completion.
