146th Belmont Stakes TODAY AT 6PM EST
11 Horses, 1 Triple Crown Contender
Ready for the most exciting 2 minutes in sports?
Distance: 1.5 miles, the longest out of the three races (Derby, Preakness, Belmont).
Post time: 6:52 p.m. ET (Horses will leave for the walk to the paddock at 6:13 and the post parade will start at 6:39)
***ALTHOUGH I am rooting for California Chrome as the underdog and a Triple Crown contender (since 1978), my equestrian experience tells me Wicked Strong will be a tough force to beat. Chrome has to take more strides than the other horses, and he needs nasal strips...NASAL STRIPS??? lol, but whatever is best for these elegant animals who probably eat better than I do - may the best horse win!
Anyone taking bets?
