Today, Belmont Park ran one of their most anticipated Wednesday programs in the history of the racetrack. Since no one hit the Pick Six on Belmont Stakes Day, the carryover into racing today was in excess of $930,000. The final Pick Six pool ended up being $3,301,873. There were winners with the correct Pick Six numbers of 4-3-10-7-1-11. Six correct paid $552,535 and five correct netted $884.
However, it is time to be real. Today's date in June 9. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of what is important in Thoroughbred racing knows what that date means. It was on this date in 1973 that Secretariat did his thing in the Belmont Stakes. Here is the video for all to enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS4f6wiQJh4.
I guess nothing else really need be said except:
Tune in on Friday for more from They Are Off. For right now, I am Gone... GOODBYE!
