Belmont Stakes Picks 2018

  • The Triple Crown trophy has a new look for Justify's attempt

The 150th Belmont Stakes race has the chance to see a Triple Crown victor as Justify - the horse that won the 2018 Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes - goes up against nine other horses in the race of its life! He digressed in the Preakness, but that was like running in the Twilight Zone, so forget it. Logic says Bravazo is the one to watch, but there are a bunch of horses with very equal credentials, and for some reason I just don't like Bravazo.

Baffert also commented on the possibility that the Preakness could be on its way out of Baltimore.

"If I can make just as much money with riding a whole lot less horses, why not?" he said, smiling. "We have it. We can't change it".

"Now he has to just close the deal", Baffert said.

And history may be on Justify's side.

Justify was led off the horse van by assistant trainer Jim Barnes, who then passed the lead shank to trainer Bob Baffert, who took Justify around the shed row several times before relinquishing him to groom Lalo Luna.

The race horse won by two and a half lengths at Churchill Downs during the wettest Derby in history.

He'll be ridden by Ricardo Santana, and he'll break from the No. 7 hole.

Okabe described the area as a mix of vacation rentals and year-round residences. Lava has covered a total of 8 square miles, scientists said Monday.

Hofburg, the early 9-2 second choice, galloped Wednesday and visited the paddock where he will be saddled on race day.

Bravazo and Vino Rosso were pegged at 8-1 each in the morning line. He had to win the Arkansas Derby to have the points to qualify for Kentucky, but since he didn't he was fresh for the Preakness.

Keen Ice was 17-1 in 2015 when he finished third behind American Pharoah, whose victory ended a 37-year Triple Crown drought. He broke from the No. 1 post in the Preakness.

Romans might have been referring to the fact that Baffert asked him to share something he'd said when the two were on the same flight up from Louisville. He has four years left on the contract he signed when Charles Wang still owned the team. "They move a little different and have the lung capacity, and they have the whole package to do it". The Detroit Tigers took Texas second baseman Kody Clemens, the youngest son of seven-time Cy Young victor Roger Clemens, with the opening pick of the third round - No. 79 overall - as the draft resumed Tuesday. "Also, the more horses in the gate, the tougher it will be for him because of potential traffic problems and a faster pace on the front end". Lukas later hired Pletcher as a groom before making him an assistant. Just how he handles it will go a long way to determining Saturday's victor.

Scherzer (10-1) won his ninth consecutive decision, striking out 13 while throwing 81 of his 99 pitches for strikes.

After all, Enable, the best filly in Europe last season, is off games until August at least, and stable-mate Cracksman looked vulnerable on the quicker ground when struggling to win the Group 1 Coronation Cup at Epsom last week.

Either way, Tuesday's outcome was stunning.
