146th Belmont Stakes

California Chrome is going for the Triple Crown

Last month saw California Chrome win both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness.  Now, the horse will attempt to win the Belmont Stakes and the elusive Triple Crown.  As exciting as that all is, if we told you the number of horse in the past 25 or 30 years who have won the first two races in the Triple Crown only to lose here at Belmont, you'd be slightly more tempered in your enthusiasm.  So, we're not going to do that.  We are only going to say that this could be the year (but, if you were offering us money, we'd take the "not" side of the bet).

NBC's coverage begins at 4:30pm and post time is 6:18pm.
