By: Sports Network


Elmont, NY (Sports Network) - Eight of the leading older thoroughbreds in training h
ave been entered in Saturday"s
 $500,000 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park. The Suburban will be contested over
1 1/4 miles on the main track.
Oaklawn Handicap winner Peace Rules will start from post three with Jerry Bailey
riding. The four-year-old is owned by Edmund Gann and trained by Bobby Frankel.
 Frankel has not sent out a winner of this race since 1970. Peace Rules also won
the New Orleans Handicap this year at the Fair Grounds.
Breaking from the inside post will be last year"s winner of the Kentucky Derby and
 Preakness Stakes, Funny Cide. The four-year-old gelding has only two wins since
capturing the first two legs of the Triple Crown in 2003. Funny Cide will be ridden
 by Jose Santos for owner Sackatoga Stable and trainer Barclay Tagg. Funny Cide lost
 by a head to Offlee Wild in the Massachusetts Handicap just two weeks ago.
Sarava, the surprise winner of the 2002 Belmont Stakes, will attempt to pull off
another unexpected win. The five-year-old will start from post four and will be ridden
 by Javier Castellano. Sarava is owned by New Phoenix Stable and trained by Bob Baffert.
Three weeks after pulling off the upset in the Stephen Foster, Colonial Colony is
no longer an unknown quantity. The six-year-old will break from post six with Rafael
 Bejarano in the saddle. Colonial Colony is owned by Lakeside Farms and trained by
Walter Bindner.
Looking to record just his second win of the year is Dynever. Dynever has not won
since early this year in the San Bernardino Handicap. Most recently he was second
