Triple Crown winner ???

142nd Running of the Belmont Stakes
Less than 10 days till post time. There’s still time to use what ever method you chose to make your Super Trifecta picks and secure your bets. I would really like to see a Triple Crown winner. Can “I’ll Have Another”, do it? I have watched the Derby and the Preakness both and replay of both races. This horse really puts the pressure on in the last few lengths wins. What I don’t see is the extra distance between his win and the 2nd place horse. So it concerns me, I will be watching and deep down I will be rooting for the horse to win. So as I continue hiding behind my cold beverage rooting Doug O’Neill and “I’ll Have Another” to a victory, I will be placing my bet. I liked Dullahan in the Kentucky Derby and I believe these will be the only two horses to contend for the win at Belmont on the 9th.  Dullahan showed a strong finish in the Derby, and then did not run in the Preakness. I believe this horse has what it takes to do the extra distance. I think with the time off did it some good, and the breezing times look like the horse is still strong.
