So we all anxiously await this Saturday, June 7th to see if California Chrome can win the Belmont to sweep the Triple Crown. I personally think he is more than capable. But I also think, as I stated following the Derby, that Commanding Curve, and Wicked Strong were going to be his biggest threats. Ride On Curlin and Social Inclusion will be after him as well.
Every year when the Belmont rolls around, I’m reminded of Point Given’s Belmont race victory. Below is a link to the reprint of Steve Haskins account of the 2001 Belmont. Enjoy!
