Belmont Stakes Recap... Real Quick

I KNOW YOU LOVE MY HORSE RACING ANALYSIS! You probably saw me pick the Kentucky Derby winner two years ago and know you should pay attention, right? (Also, I used the word "wicked" in that post, like in the good way. You guys should probably follow me!)

Well, continuing tradition, I also correctly picked yesterday's Belmont winner Tonalist. I tried for the Exacta but California Chrome didn't perform. His fourth place finish, however, sparked some predicted controversy, though that didn't exactly unfold as expected. Grab a beer, sit back and enjoy!

Oops! Wrong video!

Here is the right video where California Chrome's owner Steve Coburn had a meltdown! Despite the fact that he says he doesn't believe that he'll ever see another triple crown winner, I'd put $50 on it that he does. Trust me! Grab another beer for this one! You're gonna need it!

I have to say I totally agree with Steve! We have very little horse racing down here in Brisbane so when the big races come on we pull the TV out of storage set it up by the barn crack a few beers and place our bets. The Belmont was a real disappointment this year for the very reasons it's Steve talks about.

I'm sure you and Steve are right about the competitiveness of the sport. But it was still funny to see him lose his shit! And he'll probably see a Triple Crown winner--I'd bet money on it!
