We’ve reached my favourite leg of the Triple Crown: the Belmont Stakes.
Perhaps the most consistent part of this year’s Triple Crown season has been Classic Empire’s path being so star-crossed. Unfortunately, he is not one of the entrants into this year’s Belmont, as he came up with a foot abscess this morning. However, twelve horses did pass the entry box. Lookin at Lee will be the only horse to contest all three legs of the Triple Crown. Irish War Cry takes one more Triple Crown before going back to Jersey for the Haskell. A couple horses we saw at Hawthorne a month and a half ago, Multiplier and Hollywood Handsome, will try Big Sandy.
