Wow after all the hype and money spent.
I kind of had a bad feeling when the trainer "guaranteed" the victory and the triple crown on the walk from the barn to the track. That's something you don't do. To have confidence is one thing, and is not bad, but to literally guarantee a victory almost always jinxes you.
Wierdest horse race I ever saw. I don't think they tried to win the belmont. I think desmoureaux held him back and protected him so he would be able to collect on his 100 million stud fees.
