Belmont Stakes Entries

Dateline: 06/06/01

Post positions were drawn this afternoon for the 133rd Belmont Stakes and a field of only 9 horses was entered. Both Kentucky Derby winner Monarchos and Preakness winner


Monarchos
winner of the Kentucky Derby.
Point Given are back to try and get a second Triple Crown win and have been made the top two morning line favorites. Only two newcomers to the Triple Crown trail are entered, Buckle Down Ben and Dr. Greenfield, with the rest having all run in the Kentucky Derby. Besides the favorites, only A P Valentine and Dollar Bill will be competing in all three Triple Crown races. Interestingly enough, Point Given yet again drew the outside post as he did in both the Derby and Preakness.

Past performances are available for free online from the Daily Racing Form here and here in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Post time for the Belmont is 6:04pm EDT and between ESPN, ESPN2, and NBC there will be TV coverage nearly all afternoon (schedule).
