No Triple Crown winner this year.
Da’Tara Wins the Belmont! Big Brown lopes in last.
Da’Tara’s jockey Nick Zito said to Richard Rosenblatt of The Associated Press:
“These are long shots but that’s what makes racing,” Zito said yesterday outside his barn at Belmont Park. “Look, Upset beat Man o’ War [in 1919] and that’s where you get the sports terminology upset. So that’s the deal. We’ll have fun with it.”
Upset: Yeah, I reckon!
