Question of the day

The Kickoff

May 26, 2006

Has the Belmont Stakes become an afterthought in this year's Triple Crown?

No Triple Crown contender, no Derby winner, no Preakness winner and the horrific public injury to the star, Barbaro; the Belmont is not only an afterthought, it's irrelevant.

No question about it. This year's Belmont has neither the Kentucky Derby or Preakness winner. There should also be consideration given to extending the days between the Triple Crown races to allow the horses additional rest.

Unless there is a possibility of a Triple Crown winner, the Belmont is just another horse race.
