You know where you are? You're in the suburbs, baby. You're gonna drive.



Today California Chrome tries to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing (or simply, the Triple Crown) after having won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes last month

There are also some undercard races at Belmont Park today, coverage is on now until 4:30pm on NBCSN, and then switches to NBC until the end of the Belmont Stakes itself.

Race winners:
Acorn Stakes: Sweet Reason
Ogden Phipps: Closed Hatches
Longines Just a Game Stakes: Coffee Clique "by a flared nostril"
Metropolitan Handicap: Palace Malice (Winner of last year's Belmont Stakes)
Manhattan Stakes: Real Solution

Any idea what time the race actually starts? I don't know if I can make it through two more hours of pre-race nonsense.

6:50 is what they've been saying.

Can't I just bet that all the horses have a good time?

Regardless of what happens, California Chrome has a lot of pussy to look forward to in the future.

That's like NASCAR. Lots of excitement, lots of hope, somebody other than somebody the masses would like wins in a bad finish.

So true. So, so true. :smith:
