Today at Belmont Park

Kent Desormeaux, who wll ride Summer Bird in the Belmont Stakes, has won three races so far today at Belmont Park... The racing surface, rated good earlier today, is not only now rated as fast, but seems to be favoring frunt runners. If so, this appears to be a disadvantage for late closer Mine That Bird. Not so fast says trainer Kiaran McLaughlin who will saddle speedy Charitable Man in the Belmont. The speed favoring track may mean more company, hence more early pressure during the early stages of the Belmont... ESPN's coverage today is insightful with commentary by Randy Moss and former jockey Jerry Bailey. The Calvin Borel feature is reason enough to tune in as it is scheduled to run again this afternoon... As are the Bill Nack written historical features showing in and out of commercial breaks.
