Belmont is now the first Triple Crown race in the coronavirus era



Belmont is now the first Triple Crown race in the coronavirus era

Seven weeks late and almost 800 miles away from the traditionally respected start of time, Triple Crown 2020’s first leg finally arrived.

This year the horse race modified by the coronavirus, the last will be the first, and shortened, because the Belmont bet is set to run on Saturday (5:42 a.m.) at 1¹ / ₈ mile. Commonly known as “Test of the Champion,” for a 1½ mile run at the end of a tiring five-week span, the 152th edition of the New York jewel will never be like before. Contests and fans may be lost, but the return of the big race will still be a welcome sight for those involved.

“We never dreamed we would find ourselves in Belmont to be the first leg of Triple Crown, but it was cool enough to be someone who races in New York all year and has it here in our home court,” said Linda Rice, coach of Max Player.

There is no Kentucky Derby or Preakness to set the stage for the Belmont Stake and Triple Crown candidate, but Tiz the Law will enter the day as a forbidden favorite (lines 6-5 in the morning). The 3-year-old player from Sackatoga Stables, the only multilevel betting winner on the field, competes to become the fourth New York-born horse to win the race, and the first since Forester did it in 1882.

Tap to Win and Left Left is a speed determinant that can adjust the speed at the start of a one-way race, with Tiz the Law and Dr. Post there in a stalking position, while Sole Volante, Max Player and Farmington Road are among the closes of the group. But given all the uncertainty and irregularity in the race schedule and training ahead of Saturday, what is expected can be reversed when the gates open.

Tiz the Law last raced on March 28, winning the second bet of class 1, but veteran coach Barclay Tagg made peace with a long layoff.

“There’s not much we can do about it, for one thing,” Tagg said. “Another thing, nothing seems to bother him in any way. I asked him this morning, he said, “Don’t worry about that.”

Victory with Tiz The Law will give Tagg and Sackatoga Stables a redemption 17 years after the decisive last Saturday at Elmont. They teamed up with Funny Cide in 2003 and won Belmont Stakes from Triple Crown, but finished third on a rainy June day. Saturday’s win won’t make up for that, but for a group with a small cage, returning to this stage is absolutely not given.

“That means a lot,” Tagg said. “We don’t get top competitors all the time. He looks like a good horse. Hopefully he is as good as our expectations. “

Manny Franco will make his Belmont Stakes debut riding Tiz the Law, but Tagg is not worried about the 25-year-old tackle under pressure – even if only four of the last 20 Belmont Stakes favorites actually win the race.

“He will have more pressure on him if he does something wrong,” Tagg said with a laugh. “We love Manny, Manny is good to us. He’s a very, very good rider. “

Belmont betting – originally scheduled to run June 6 – is one of 12 races set for Saturday, with Class 1 Woody Stephens, Pennine Ridge Class 2, Grade 3 Wonder Again, Grade 1 Longines Acorn and Grade 1 Jaipur all on the show. court.
