Giants will be well-represented at Belmont Stakes

The Triple Crown trophy has a new look for Justify's attempt

It is hard to ignore how implausible it seems that a colt with only five career races since February could complete one of the most difficult feats in racing.

Bravazo and Tenfold are the only other runners besides Justify entering the Belmont who last ran three weeks ago in the Preakness. Only 12 horses have won the Triple Crown, and American Pharoah (2015) is the only one to do it since 1978.

"Obviously, they'll be at the big events more than others and they're all worthy".

"He's a tough horse", the trainer said.

Asmussen said it can be a long, hard journey.

Baffert said there isn't a firm game plan for the next two days. Still, Kent Desormeaux's tentative ride on Big Brown - the jockey pulled up the uninjured horse in the stretch - was baffling. Albaugh Family Stables' Grade 1 victor Free Drop Billy will be a decided long shot against Kentucky Derby and Preakness victor Justify in Saturday's 2018 Belmont Stakes, but Romans wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

"No, they're not going to say that, they're going to say 'another trainer, '" added Bravazo trainer D. Wayne Lucas. By the way, Baffert also trained Silver Charm.

Tim Lincecum won't be making a major league comeback with the Texas Rangers, who had signed the two-time NL Cy Young victor during spring training with plans for him to be a reliever.

Justify will line up with nine horses to his right as part of a field that includes five horses he beat during a rain-soaked Kentucky Derby and two he beat at a wet and foggy Preakness Stakes.

Lukas takes pride in seeing his peers and protégés succeed, especially Pletcher.

Before American Pharoah, Baffert had three horses - Silver Charm in 1997, Real Quiet in 1998, and War Emblem in 2002 - win the Derby and the Preakness, then come up short in the Belmont.

Besides winning the Eclipse Award seven times, Pletcher has established a reputation for strength in numbers when it comes to graded stakes contenders.

Australian grandma sentenced to death for drugs in Malaysia
In Malaysia , anyone found guilty of smuggling more than 1.76 ounces of an illegal drug must be sentenced to death. The drugs were sewn into the lining of a bag that had been given to her by her boyfriend, whom she had met online.

A legendary prognosticator and current CBS Sports expert, Goldberg couldn't have been more dead-on about the 2018 Kentucky Derby.

"But the thing that has me a bit anxious is the last horse to win the Belmont drawing the rail was Empire Maker in 2003 - in a six-horse field".

"As far as the numbers they train, in Todd's case it's a benefit because he has very competent assistants".

All Spring I was entralled with a horse who had run once or twice in his life, but had shown remarkable talent on the track.

The deal, which will display the Wheels Up logo on Justify's blanket and jockey Smith's pant legs, turtleneck and boots, was put together by NY sports agency Leverage Agency.

Two years after trainer Bob Baffert guided American Pharoah to the first Triple Crown since 1978, he enters the Belmont Stakes on Saturday in NY with another chance to complete the sweep.

Top-ranked Simona Halep has leveled at one set-all in her French Open quarterfinal against Angelique Kerber of Germany. Muguruza essentially got that round off, too: Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko , quit with an injury after only two games.

The field for the 150th Belmont in post position order with jockeys and odds: Justify, Smith, 4-5; Free Drop Billy, Robby Albarado, 30-1; Bravazo, Luis Saez, 8-1; Hofburg, Irad Ortiz Jr., 9-2; Restoring Hope, Geroux, 30-1; Gronkowski, Jose Ortiz, 12-1; Tenfold, Ricardo Santana Jr., 12-1; Vino Rosso, John Velazquez, 8-1; Noble Indy, Javier Castellano, 30-1; Blended Citizen, Kyle Frey, 15-1.
