Commissioner nearly became the latest long shot to win the Belmont Stakes, losing to Tonalist in a photo finish as a 28-1 shot Saturday. Trainer Todd Pletcher said all along his horse had the perfect pedigree to run 1 ½ miles at Belmont Park. He had dreamed of saddling him in the Belmont from the first days he worked with the colt. “He ran super,” Pletcher said. “I didn't anticipate that we would be on the lead, but we weren't going to take away anything they gave us. He was almost good enough today.” Like Tonalist, Commissioner did not run in either of the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

ELMONT, N.Y. - After another difficult morning working in the starting gate, third-place Preakness finisher Social Inclusion will not run in Saturday's Belmont Stakes. "I don't want to hurt the horse," owner Ron Sanchez said as he watched Social Inclusion take a bath Wednesday morning. "There's no good reason to put him in that gate in front of 140,000 people. " The speedy colt will instead run in the seven-furlong Woody Stephens, earlier on Saturday's race card. The key difference, Sanchez said, is that the Woody Stephens will start on the far side of the track, away from the crowd.

Throughout the week leading up to the Kentucky Derby, California Chrome's co-owner predicted victory to anyone who'd listen, saying he felt it from his gut and his heart. Coburn, wearing his trademark cowboy hat, sang the same confident tune Wednesday after his champion drew the No. 3 post position for Saturday's Preakness Stakes . His strong belief was echoed in the morning line set by Pimlico handicapper Keith Feustle, which has California Chrome as a massive 3-5 favorite. “I'm great with No. 3,” Coburn said after the evening draw, held on the infield at Pimlico Race Course.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - When Art Sherman reached the barn at 5 a.m. Sunday, the day after the Kentucky Derby, he found his star pupil still slumbering. “I didn't want to wake him up,” he said of California Chrome, the newly garlanded champion of Churchill Downs. “I know he'd had a hard day.” The 77-year-old trainer looked wide awake, walking crisply around Barn 20, though he professed to be “numb” to the previous day's triumph. He said the enormity probably won't hit him until he finds a few moments alone in his lounge chair, outside the family home in Rancho Bernardo, Calif.

Ron Sanchez's roots in horse racing go deep into his childhood in Caracas, Venezuela, where his maternal grandmother took him to the races every weekend at La Rinconada, the country's largest and oldest track. "I was five years old and we'd walk all the way to the track, it's like two miles," Sanchez recalled Monday at Pimlico. "I fall in love [with horse racing]. Once you get here [to the race track], it's impossible to get out. " Though Sanchez also dreamed of becoming a major league baseball player - he was a member of the Venezuelan national team in his late teens and said he "almost signed" a pro contract - the love of racing never left.

As Triple Crown contender California Chrome went about his daily routine Saturday in preparation for the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes, a sizable field was shaping up to challenge the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner in the 11/2-mile race. As many as 11 could line up against California Chrome, who galloped 13/4 miles over a sloppy track at 6 a.m., picking up the pace as he went through the Belmont Park stretch a second time. “That's the way he gallops all the time,” said Alan Sherman, son of and assistant to California Chrome's trainer, Art Sherman.
