Great--back to YouTube to watch that Belmont Stakes again. Weren't there only 5 horses in that Belmont?
Fan forums are enjoyable. They are not life or death.
Yep. Per Lester, it was a horsmen's race:
Short Fields, Jockeys control the races with short field, five thru seven horse’s field are poison for the player, most of time a horse is scratch at the gate, which give the jockeys time to figure out who will win, when it comes to five horse fields, the race is already over before it even started, the jockeys will pick a winner among themselves and collect.
Favorite may as well be named 'heart breaking' because since the 70's, there really isn't a favorite moment that should be considered.
Most memorable (since I followed racing) was the Smarty Jones loss to Birdstone in the Belmont..
Real Quiet/Victory Gallop should be considered as well with the obvious one's from the 70s
Take my advise and do what you please
2010 stands out as really special because of the wonderful trainwreck of jasmine villegas butchering Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind and being booed unmercifully.. thank you sweet baby jesus for having NYRA come to its senses in 2011 and reinstating Frank in perpetuity...
