Title: Belmont Stakes
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on June 03, 2014, 09:41:04 PM
Saturday will be a big day at Belmont Park in NYC. California Chrome is trying to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978, 36 years ago. Since then; Spectacular Bid, Genuine Risk, Pleasant Colony, Gato Del Sol, Sunny's Halo, Swale, Spend A Buck, Ferdinand, Alysheba, Winning Colors, Sunday Silence, Unbridled, Strike The Gold, Lil E Tee, Sea Hero, Go For Gin, Thunder Gulch, Grindstone, Silver Charm, Real Quiet, Charismatic, Fusaichi Pegasus, Monarchos, War Emblem, Funny Cide, Smarty Jones, Giacomo, Barbaro, Street Sense, Big Brown, Mine That Bird, Super Saver, Animal Kingdom, I'll Have Another, and Orb all failed in the past 35 years. Can the streak be broken? (Colored are ones who had the TC on the line)
