Would be nice to have at least one dry day this year.
But Belmont weather after so many dry days, has a steady rain predicted for Saturday.
If thats the case just give him the da*mn trophy.
Lets hope the forecast improves.

Your so right on if it’s muddy, give him the trophy. But if it’s fast track which it probably won’t happen, Justify would have a battle near the front. My longshot in Vino Rosso , so hope he runs a good race because he can go the distance.

Right now, it looks like 50% chance of thunderstorms, so maybe not complete washout like first 2, I think Vino Rossi has big chance also, but he should be tossed if there is a wet track.  I still think Justify could lose on wet track, but he would have a greater chance of winning with his tactical speed.....

Looking like it will be dry which I think helps Justify actually. I don't think we have seen his best yet. I see Noble Indy as a pace threat but if Justify is right I think he gets lead and wins by plenty. Lots of mid pack types in here but not much speed. And normal pace leads hold big in the Belmont. That said I can't play him and hope he isn't right and toss him out of the money. I'll play Noble Indy over a bunch but I haven't narrowed it down yet.
