1999 Belmont Entries

Dateline: 6/02/99

The post positions have been drawn and Charismatic is in the homestretch of his drive to become the 12th Triple Crown winner. Eleven rivals were entered against him and he drew the favorable 4 post. Collected here are photos of and links to info about the horses entered including post positions and morning line odds. The past performances in Adobe Acrobat PDF format are available from Equibase here. More Belmont and Triple Crown info can be found on my page of  Triple Crown 1999 links and I also have a TV coverage schedule available.

I also have a couple of polls going. One for "Will Charismatic win the Triple Crown?" and one for "Who will win the Belmont?". Please be sure to cast your votes.
