I hope they win it.

Just imagine the composition of the Belmont crowd!


My momma grew up not far from them. My whole family comes from Brooklyn. Half still live there. So Probably insane! That's why I hope.

It's been fourteen years since Funny Cide and most of my memories are of hypothermia, so I could really go for an NY Belmont this year!

Honestly a little surprised by the lack of respect he's getting at the windows.

Why are they hyping up CI so much more than the Derby winner? Is one of them more marketable? AD was seriously impressive in the Derby, if he runs back to that performance he'll win over a perfect trip from CI.

I think they want to hype up the rivalry to make it a more marketable race, but they are going way overboard. It's already a great matchup. I think the only person who has mentioned the Derby pace all day is Tom Durkin, like three hours ago, and it's frustrating to see very little acknowledgement of how good Always Dreaming was two weeks ago.

my only pre-race analysis is that Channing Hill is the cutest jockey this side of Gary Stevens

Also someone needs to tell Pletcher and Asmussen that they need to dye their mustaches white as well

After learning that Pletcher grew the goatee because someone at an airport mistook him for Baffert, I'm in favor of it.

Classic Empire looks like he's grown a bit.
