QUOTES

BOB BAFFERT (JUSTIFY, Post Position 7, 3-1/SOLOMINI, Post Position 17, 30-1) – “That’s a good spot. We didn’t want to be in the one-hole and we didn’t want to be 20. Seven is fine but he still has to break well. If he doesn’t break well it doesn’t matter what hole he’s in. We only have one option. We have to break. He’s lightly raced and he has to leave there running. I’m glad I got here late. I was still in the parking lot when it happened so I didn’t get a chance to fret. I walked in and saw Justify seven and was like, ‘I’ll take that. Dale Romans has that really fast horse (Promises Fulfilled, post No. 3) and I would’ve hated for him to be outside of me so that’s good. I think all the good horses are in good spots. It’s one of the toughest Derbys that I’ve ever seen and one of the best draws that I’ve ever seen. The most important horses got good draws. My excuses are really dwindling so now I’ve got to come with the horse. He’s a horse that just going to fall away from there. I would’ve preferred to have seen him somewhere on the inside to save some ground but I think everyone should be happy with their draw. I don’t see any advantage that I have or that anyone else has. I have Solomini in there to pick up the pieces in case things fall apart up front. It’s nice to have a couple more weapons.”

Horse Racing Odds – 2021 Belmont Stakes Longshots

Horse Racing Odds – 2021 Belmont Stakes Longshots

The third jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown takes place Saturday with a field of eight horses set to take their shot in the Belmont Stakes. Opening odds for the 153rd edition suggest a wide-open field, which in turn can lead to an upset special. The number of longshots is diminished by the small field, but like we saw in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, anything can happen.
