The horses

A co-worker and I were talking about the Belmont and somehow thought it was going to be run tomorrow. Well, I was looking for a list of the horses running, but could not find one. I am sure, closer to June 11th, I will locate one. It's never too early to think about who will end up winning:) In the text below, I see that the general admission is $10. Hey, I think I could afford that. It's the huge crowd of people that would probably bother me.. and of course, getting there. Maybe, some year.
