Saturday Morning Update: Belmont Stakes, Giants Links

It’s Belmont Day here in NYC and Andrea has left town just in time. The track has a few hours to dry before post time. The big race won’t go off until 6:36 pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to handicap this one. If the track is still a bit soggy by then, it will only make the favored Orb, who won the Derby in the slop last month a more prohibitive favorite.

Fennelly’s picks: Overanalyze, Orb, Unlimited Budget… Longshot: Ingognito

GEICO SportsNite has reactions from hall of fame jockey Gary Stevens, who will be riding the Preakness winner, Oxbow, in today’s Belmont Stakes.

Remember, there are restrictions on what you can bring into the track today, primarily coolers. Click here for full list.
