Long shot wins at Belmont
By TigerHawk at 6/12/2011 08:11:00 AM
Not being much for the ponies, I did not watch the Belmont Stakes yesterday. This most demanding of the Triple Crown stakes races was, however, very exciting, won by a long shot in the final moments (a $2 bet paid $51.20). The call of the race, now on YouTube, is a classic.
