Statement by NYRA CEO & and President Chris Kay on Justify and the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes

Belmont Park will play host to a Triple Crown hopeful when Justify attempts to add the 150th running of the Grade 1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes to his victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. It will mark the first Triple Crown attempt since American Pharoah and Victor Espinoza rode into racing immortality in 2015.

With a horse like Audible who really makes the decision to run or not?

Owner 1
Owner 2
Owner 3/4/5

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Thanks.
I understand that he'll be the one to make the announcement, I was just curious if anybody thought he might to defer to somebody else's judgement, like Pletcher for example.

Looking at a 26 year average winning Beyer score of 103.7 in the Belmont Stakes, lacking any other notable projection at this point in time, the question is Who is capable of running that kind of number?

Assuming there's a possibility of a Triple Crown in the making, let's bump up the average number a couple of points and ask the same question again, who is capable of running a 105 or 106 in this year's edition because they're a special horse?

We all know that Justify tops the field with a 107 but some say he may be in declining form, so let's look elsewhere....

Some think it might be Audible, and his best lifetime Beyer is _______?

While others think it might be the up and coming Bravazo whose lifetime best is __________?

Do you think Justify will be + or - even money on the odds board?

(and for those that prefer Ragozin or Thorograph sheet numbers, I think the comparisons will be similar, no?)
