    I've been watching this closely. My main concern is CC has never ran on a sloppy track and there's a chance of rain last I heard. Weather can change so I'm watching.

    I'm also watching post positions, think it's Weds..

    CC is the horse to beat for sure, currently looking at this Trifecta.

    1. California Chrome (11-10)
    2. Ride On Curlin (11-2)
    3. Tonalist (15-2)

    Might do a 132 also.

    I'm sure I'll change before the race but liking this currently with no mud in CC's face. ;)

    I hear ya. I'm not sure the gods and all their rain,thunder and lightning can beat this horse. I'm hoping so anyway the sport needs a hero to bring it back.

    I only follow harness racing but the story behind California Chrome is great. I hope he wins the Triple Crown!

    My pick for this race is:

    1. Ride On Curlin
    2. California Chrome
    3. Wicked Strong

    The only thing that makes me unsure of Wicked Strong is a terrible post position, but I'm confident he'll come in 3rd anyway. CC is a great sprinter, but I think ROC is a better distance horse. I got 2/3 right in both the Derby and Preakness. Hoping for perfection this weekend. :)

    I'd get a second ticket with them boxed and that will solve the problem. :)

    Wicked Strong: After a troubled 4th in the Kentucky Derby, he makes his return here in the Belmont Stakes. He was closing fast late last time and the extra ground here could help him get up in time.

    I went ahead and added on a $2 exacta with the same four horses boxed ($2 x 12= $24 ticket). Should I miss my trifectas maybe I can hit that one to even everything out.

    I've just got to say, what we saw at the end of that race (and the following day) was an embarrassing display of poor sportsmanship. I'm not going to get into the debate of "fresh horses" (didn't they all just have a month off?) in the Belmont, because there are plenty of good arguments to be made on both sides. I will just say that the rant that was aired on television was in very poor taste.

    I played a lot of sports growing up. I wasn't good at most of them, but always had fun playing. Any time we lost, we always shook the hands of the opposing players and congratulated them on the win. I would never have dreamed of calling out the winning team and calling them cowards. The whole ordeal was just uncalled for, and shame on NBC for giving that rant coverage instead of spending that time interviewing the owners of the winning horse.
