I had hoped for an option to keep the 1 1/4 mile.  It just will not seem like a Triple Crown effort for me.  I know these are extreme circumstances we are in and they feel they have to.

i am assuming there wont be a mile and a half race as part.of the triple crown this year --

without a mile and a half race, if a horse should win all 3 races, it wont  be a legitimate

trip!e crown IMO--  it is the Belmont that is the real test of a champion--

i understand nothing in sports is going to be normal this yearbut still----

I feel exactly the same.  I’ll still enjoy watching the races but the excitement level will be a notch or two below a normal year.  And it’s just NOT the Belmont Stakes at that distance.  But I’m thankful we have tracks opening up and horses running.
