Friday’s card at Belmont features the fourth edition one of my favourite races of the year: the Belmont Gold Cup (G3).
It’s graded for the first time this year, and it drew a deep field of 13: seven Americans, and six international horses. It’s exciting to see how far this race has come in just four years. The race has more proven stayers than ever before, and classier contestants as well.
In addition to a full preview of the Belmont Gold Cup, I also share my picks for all of Friday’s stakes races.
