Belmont Stakes Portion of Triple Crown in Two Weeks

In just a couple weeks, the third portion of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, will be held at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby and Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness. Only eleven horses have ever won all three segments of the Triple Crown, and none since 1978. Did you know that Chrysler was the sponsor of the Triple Crown from 1987 to 1993, and VISA (V), which trades on the New York Stock Exchange, was the sponsor from 1998 to 2005. If you missed my article on horse racing and racehorse stocks, you should check it out.

I actually bet on the Mine that Bird in the Kentucky Derby and won. It was funny how the jockey jumped on that female horse to win again. Smart move on his part.

Also, interesting that mine that bird came in second! Do you think the horse would have won if the jockey stayed on it?
