It’s Belmont Day! The last jewel of this year’s Triple Crown is rather unusual in that none of the expected favorites are racing: Always Dreaming (the Kentucky Derby winner), Cloud Computing (the Preakness winner), and even Classic Empire are all not in the field today. The field is wide open!
We think the horses to watch today are Irish War Cry and Tapwrit. Irish War Cry is up-and-down, but he is due for a good run and has a good post position. Tapwrit is also looking strong, although he will be starting from post 2. If we had to choose, we would probably pick Irish War Cry as the more likely winner today. But, Mom has a soft spot for grays, so my new gray friend and I will be rooting for Tapwrit!
