The Belmont

Rach's drawing- Point Given -2001 BelmontThere is no doubt that Point Given’s best and most dominating performance came in the “test of champions”- The Belmont. This is where he proved he was a force to be reckoned with. I can’t even count the number of times I have watched the race replay of Point Given’s win in the 2001 Belmont. You can literally see the point where Gary must have opened up the jet pack because the two of them went flying!

Knowing that this is my favorite of Point Given’s races, my daughter Rachel sketched a poster sized picture of Gary and Point Given crossing the wire as a gift for me this past Christmas. She did an amazing job and it is something I will always treasure!

So I thought it was appropriate timing to share the gift since the Belmont is this Saturday. So thrilled to see that Gary is once again in the saddle and we certainly will be cheering him and Oxbow on to victory.
