    You can never take the favorite in the Belmont. It is Idiotic. Maybe the
    favorite will win but to bet on him in a race this long is dumb. There is
    always going to be a Creator or Destin.

    Creator was thinking, “Hey, if I win this race, I will get to mount a bunch
    of mares.” Talk about incentive.

    The following race comments are from the official results chart (DRF)

    CREATOR tucked along the rail after a clean start, rated kindly continuing
    tohug the inside for the opening mile, slipped out into the two path
    leaving the half mile pole, narrowed in on the front runners, was put to
    solid urging swinging three wide into the stretch, split rivals in midlane
    while making steady progress on the leader, drifted out slightly from left
    side pressure from the sixteenth pole to the final seventy yards, all the
    while inching his way forward. kept a straighter course when switched over
    to a strong hand drive and wore down DESTIN in the final jump.

    DESTIN attained a prominent position soon after the start,got rated
    attending the pacesetter from the two path, continued along under the same
    scenario all the way to the quarter pole,got asked for more heading home,
    commenced the stretch approximately three wide, wrested away the advantage
    and shook free,emerging at the eighth pole holding his biggest lead, saw it
    dwindle down in a steadfast manner as the winner closed in, dug in with
    determination only to get nipped right at the finish line.

    LANI on the track last, left the post parade early, proceeded to come away
    at the start with no mishap, took the three path for most of the way on the
    clubhouse turn,departed the backstretch one path wider, was given his cue
    angling farther to the outside entering the stretch, was six wide by the
    conclusion of the maneuver, rallied to secure the show.

    GOVERNOR MALIBU remained along the rail after the start, kept an eye on the
    front runners sitting in the pocket, was checked while in tight and close
    proximity to the heels of GETTYSBURG at the quarter pole, angled into the
    two path only to have that lane blocked by the aforementioned rival,
    altered course back to the rail, was in the vicinity of the eighth
    pole,when forced to check in tight quarters when cut off by the former
    pacesetter, tipped wider and got going again, finishing with good courage
    to earn the last major check.

    STRADIVARI brushed the right side of the gate, sat forwardly placed in the
    two path and between foes early, chased the pace from the three path on the
    second bend, got roused challenging three to four wide into the stretch,
    wasn’t up to the task at hand and weakened.

    BRODY’S CAUSE reserved in the two path during the initial stages, traveled
    three wide on the far turn, was put to drive past its midway point, stepped
    into the stretch and went on to mainly improve position.

    CHERRY WINE strung out three wide on the far turn, had no rally.

    GETTYSBURG off alertly, quickly established control, cut over to the rail,
    showed the way, rated and with the runner up accompanying him in path two,
    came under heavy pressure approaching the quarter pole, drifted into the
    two path under a strong hand ride entering the stretch, came in soon
    afterwards when put to some corrective right handed pressure, got
    overhauled by the furlong marker and tired.

    SUDDENBREAKINGNEWS spun four wide into the backstretch, departed it from
    the same path, drifted eight wide into the stretch with little left.

    TROJAN NATION was outrun off a ground-saving journey.

    EXAGGERATOR three wide on the first turn, was one path farther off the rail
    on the subsequent one,was put to a drive challenging for command setting
    foot into the stretch, came up empty and backed away.

    SEEKING THE SOUL raced three wide on both turns and tired.

    FOREVER D’ORO three wide on the first turn, was along the rail and used on
    the turn two, gave way.

    What a ride by Irad. Couldn’t have gone better. The hole Irad hit on the
    stretch almost closed on him.

  12. FightingIrish595 says:

    I’ve been following the horse shaman ghost since before the marine stakes
    last year. He won the queens plate. I bet him yesterday and he won. I bring
    this up because Rosario was on him. He saved ground inside. Tried to do the
    same thing on Malibu but the key difference was shaman ghost had room to

    4.15 seconds slower than Secretariat…

  15. Crazy Chick says:

    what the heck happened with Exaggerator? though I doubted he would have won
    anyway with Creator, I had thought he would be trailing second place.

  16. Michael Wolf says:

    just like a fleet Alex inside in the Derby.

  17. Tami Terrana says:

    if you watch desormeux on exxagerator……he holds him on the backstretch
    and stops asking him to run at top of the longest stretch in the
    country… Kent… a bigger paycheck throwing the race?

  18. Who Who and Zulu. says:

    I thought the call was over done considering no triple crown ….
    I mean what did Creator upset that was so exciting ?
    Just another horse got caught at the wire , it happens all the time
