TVG has had all the undercard races...so far...beginning their NY coverage hours before NBCSN started at 11 AM Pacific. That may change when the Big Dog In the Manger, NBC, starts its coverage.
So Happy for Hoppy! I hope some American stud farm appreciates his long, lucrative career and finds a stall in their stallion barn for him.

Man, now I wish there was a 12f G1 Dirt race for olders... someone sponsor this! Or just increase the JCGC back to 12f :lol:

Edit: Retrospectiv this link works very well I used it before for the Derby and I think Carole also uses it without issue https://123stream.io/live/64232
Yay! I can see on that link :D
Shame as I was really enjoying the Belmont feed, with all the race entry info and such.

What was the final time in the Brooklyn? Curious as the track is fast, but they'd crawled through the 1st 3/4 that I saw.

Disco Partner does it again! I love that little grey sprinter; he seems to have afterburners in the stretch! And he has a beautiful head, with big, dark eyes on a fine-boned head, like an Arabian.
Nice run by Conquest Tsunami, who I believe hung on for 2nd.

Glad to see War Story run second to Hoppy. He's a deserving warrior too. . . . yeah, yeah, I know.

My favorite old boys Hoppy and Disco Partner both win—it’s been a happy day so far. :D

He did! Hung on for second in the 2nd fastest Jaipur ever (fastest was last year's world record) he did very well and was very game, but man Disco Partner just gobbles up the Belmont turf!

Still Having Fun takes the Woody Stephens!
Honorable mention to the two pace setters who hung on for 3rd and 4th after that RIDICULOUS opening pace they set there. Promises Fulfilled could probably turn into a decent 5-6f specialist although if they got him to actually relax once in a while he could take some big races.

Rosario likes Bravazo and Hofburg in the Belmont if he had to pick a ride to upset Justify.

A mile is a bit too short for Biscuits.

Bolt d'Oro went absolutely nowhere, he should've been in the Woody Stephens.

I think that Bolt needs a vacay or easier spots.

NICE race for Bee Jersey and Mind Your Biscuits!

I think the rail is dead. I mean I think Bolt d'Oro had a lot going against him, but still, yikes.

Is Bee Jersey a Fipke homebred? Gritty, gutsy performance!
