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

The Stars & Stripes card gets a rare network spot from 4:30 6 PM Eastern/ 1:30-3 Pacific. That program is followed by a Belmont Park Live telecast from 6-7 Eastern/3-4 Pacific on FS2 and regionally on MSG+, FOX Sports Prime Ticket and FOX Sports San Diego.

There were talks that Analyze It had reached his distance limitation last time, but Brown entered him and he knows him best... so that speaks volumes to me. I think...!

I want to make sure I pick a horse who will still be running in deep stretch, with that in mind I'll go with the Desormeaux brothers and MyBoyJack @ 6/1.

Catholic Boy was just so impressive. Owner choked up with emotion post race. They've got a good one.

I was very suspicious and skeptical of this colt when he was on the Derby trail, but he has really won me over in his past two races with his grit and determination. Plus, he is by More Than Ready, one of my favorite sires. ;)

I heard even before this race the connections were eyeing a return to dirt for the Travers.
