I had such high hopes. But another Belmont is over and there’s no Triple Crown winner.
You have to wonder about the crack on Big Brown’s hoof and how it affected his performance on the 1 1/2 mile track.
Kent Desormeaux had some excuses ..the heat a stumble “long before we went into the last turn. I had no horse.”
Desormeaux said there’s no relationship between the heel and the sorry finish.
Maybe next year. There’s a reason why the Triple Crown is the hardest accomplishment in sports — three races in four weeks — a grueling pace…for the equine athletes
