Real Quiet (1998) and War Emblem (2002) all fell short. "And this horse is getting there".
"I never do like the rail", Baffert told reporters at the Belmont draw Tuesday. "It catches up to them, and that's what happens". "When the horses come to him, he sort of takes off again". We provide our community with the opportunity to share their opinions and vote on topics that matter most to them.
There is an "after the lord mayor's show" feeling about the racing menu in the United Kingdom next Saturday, with Royal Ascot less than two weeks away, but there are two Group 3s at Haydock, and I like CRIBBS CAUSEWAY in the Pinnacle Stakes and DUTCH CONNEC- TION in the John O'Gaunt Stakes. "[As a sports fan] you want to see the Golden State Warriors, you want to see Steph Curry ... you want to see the superstars".
Last year, Smith won 15 Grade 1 races, the most since he won 20 in 1994.
War Emblem staggered out of the gate before eventually regaining the lead at the Belmont in 2002, but the horse ran out of gas down the stretch and finished eighth.
Tenfold has the best breeding to get the mile and a half Saturday. "It's like we know it can be done". "War Emblem, he stumbled badly but he's the only one I brought up here that I was a little bit anxious about him", Baffert said.
"I've got it down to what I think is a science with my fitness level, so if I hadn't ridden in four, five days I could jump on one and it doesn't take nothing out", he said.

They will be side by side over a length of 95 Degrees above the equator, more than 22,000 Miles upwards. The rocket has initiatives to transport an SFS-12 satellite into space this month.
Bravazo also has a favourable draw at No. 3 and will be hopeful of posing a challenge on the top spot. "Justify has only run five races in his career, but he'll be tested by other horses in the Belmont Stakes lineup who are fresh".
"I was like everyone else". "I miss him a lot".
Of course, it's more fun to make your own picks.
Smith has curtailed his work schedule to focus on riding the best horses in the biggest races. Silver Charm (1997) lost the Belmont by three-quarters of a length, and Real Quiet (1998) lost by a nose.
Baffert has another horse in the race: Restoring Hope, the third-place finisher in the Wood Memorial. Stronach Group is the parent company of the Maryland Jockey Club, the owners of the Preakness, Pimlico and Laurel Park. "I am grateful to be a small part of the circle". He's long shared an affinity for Baltimore and Pimlico.
The soft-spoken Mott says he would nearly prefer to train the horses and send them over to the paddock to race while he stays back at the barn.
"Let's see if he can do it", Baffert said of Justify. "Just a very welcoming, horseman-friendly type, and after the Derby, everybody's having fun". "You've got guys that have been there, done that and the whole experience is such a challenge". Like in the Derby, everybody's gunning for each other.
"On behalf of the men and women of NYRA, we look forward to hosting Giants head coach Pat Shurmur at Belmont Park for the running of a historic Belmont Stakes", said NYRA CEO and President Chris Kay. "I don't blame them".
