Just watching some of my favorite races on youtube. Risen Star's Belmont was by far one that always gives me chills.
Crazy that until the next year father and son owned the two fastest Belmonts and both did it in pretty similar style. Whenever people bring up the topic of best horses to run in all 3 TC races and win 2, I always see horses like Point Given, Afleet Alex, Smarty Jones, Sunday Silence, etc...
But to be honest, I think Risen Star gets kind of forgotten about. This horse was good and seemed to be getting better as that year went on. And it's really too bad he had to be retired after the Belmont. Anyone else agree?
