figured it was time the Belmont had its own thread ;)

Right now there’s only 9 possibles/probables:

Everfast, Intrepid Heart, Master Fencer, Owendale, Sir Winston, Spinoff, Tacitus, Tax, and War of Will.  To me the wild card is Master Fencer since there’s not much to go on with him as far as past performances are concerned.  If I had to bet on it today I think I would throw up my hands and box a $1 superfecta on Spinoff, Intrepid Heart, WoW, and Tax.  Note:  Afleet Alex was the last to not win the derby (Giacomo) before going on to win the Preakness and Belmont, 14 years ago, so War of Will could gain a measure of fame with a win in the Belmont.

I think Bourbon War and Joevia are also possible

Last I heard Bourbon War is out and Joevia is possible.

Bourbon War must still be finishing the Preakness.He obviously loved the ground as he stayed out playing on it longer than anyone else

Lol!  I’m not sure what happened to him in the Preakness or why he got bet down so low other than running (4th?)in the Fla. Derby.

I think he got credit for closing into a slow pace in Florida.The fact that Max and CoH came out of that race probably had something to do with it as well

Well that was why I picked him out a least, the key race angle, even though it appeared as though he has regressed a little in the Fla. Derby from the FoY.  Not sure about why anyone else picked him.

I hope another horse gets entered than what is on the early PPs?  Still don't know if Bourbon War is in this. Is Global Campaign going to go in?
Post positions while not as important as in other races, I have my druthers, so I will wait for them to come out.

Results of this year's Derby had colts on a number of fronts and reasons pass the Preakness. Belmont distance @ mile and half again passers of the gate.

Also this year, the Haskell is one week earlier, and win and your in the Breeders Cup Classic.

And as you know DQed Derby colt Maximum Security is running in the Haskell.

And the Haskell is a short race at mile and an eighth.

If Max wins the Haskell (hold one's breath that he does not impede when another runner gets near him)  the cast in the August Spa Travers will be very exciting and enticing.
