Belmont Results, 6/5/10



Ice Box was never a factor and First Dude came in third. Congratulations to Mike Smith and Drosselmeyer; the former captured his first Belmont Stakes, and the latter has never run in a G1 race before - a nice first try! Click here for the the results from today's full card.

In spite of tough luck in the big race, team No Hassle at the Castle did pretty good at the windows today. Coupled with last Monday's victorious outing, it seems that I'm in the midst of the most fragile and evanescent of all racetrack phenomena: the winning streak. Now that I've told the world I'm sure it's jinxed, but it's important to savor these moments while you can!
