Editor's Note--Well, the winner of the Derby isn't running today. And the winner of the Preakness isn't running today. Which is very odd. But they will still run the 149th Belmont Stakes today. In attendance, will be me, Big D, the glitterati, the Hoi polloi, and assorted others. And we plan on making the money. The BIG money. So let me pass the microphone. Oh Large Richard!--R.B.
Well, it's good to be here, Richie, and to all of you, hello. The weather is perfect in Elmont, NY. Race 11 is at 6:37pm Eastern. The 149th Belmont Stakes. And oh a funky race it is.
No Triple Crown. Not even a 2 out of 3 ain't bad Crown. Just 12 good 3 year old boys running 1.5 miles for a bunch of cash. We smell longshots. LONGSHOT ALERT!
Mike Smith is one of the biggest (not heightwise) jockeys out there. He doesn't usually race on a horse that is 15-1. Today he will. Ok oddsmakers. Thanks. #9 MEANTIME to win.
Jockey Joel Rosario has never finished worse than fourth in the Belmont Stakes. He's also won it. He's on the 10 MULTIPLIER. Also 15-1. We'll also play a 9-10 exacta box.
The #5 HOLLLYWOOD HANDSOME is a big price 30-1. We like to call Richie that when he's drinking.He's a real nice horse. 🐴. We'll include him. 5-9-10 trifecta box.
So the happy, Beautiful, Belmont Park Stakes recap: 9 Win. 9-10 exacta box, 5-9-10 trifecta box.
Good luck and god bless!
