New York-born Tees win the 152nd Belmont Stakes at the Law Triple Crown Opener

NEW YORK – Teej The Law won an unprecedented Belmont Stakes, claiming the first race of the rearranged Triple Crown Schedule in front of the Early Zero Grandmothers on Saturday.

The 3-year-old hobby kid moved home in the highlands of New York and can now schedule the September 5 Kentucky Derby and its sights in October. Three legs of this year’s Triple Crown schedule were suspended due to the coronavirus epidemic. Belmont, usually the series keeper, was originally scheduled for June 6.

Tease the Law has given New York a hometown champion in its first major sports event since the Koznivirus epidemic took over the region. He was the first New York-bred horse to win Belmont since Forrester in 1882.

“It’s definitely a much smaller crowd,” said Jack Nolton, owner of a restaurant patio in the Sarataga Springs neighborhood.

4-5 favorites won by four lengths, covering 1 1/8 miles at 1: 46.53. Dr. Post is second and Max Player is third.

The competition was shortened from the 1 1/2-mile standard to account for the unusual training schedule of the contestants. The horses kicked from the gate placed on the back stretch without going in front of the grandstands.

For the most part, these Belmont states were different from the previous 151s. The Long Island track could pack about 100,000 but there were about 100 people in the race, including jockeys, media and park staff.

Masks were made compulsory for everyone except horses – even Zakiras were wearing masks.

Closed to the public since March, Belmont Park bears a striking resemblance to the summer Saudi New Yorkers. Gift window gift and gift shops were closed, none sinking for the winds of Belmont.

The foot traffic was so slow that a few weeds a foot long spread among the bricks for the track side pavilion.

The 112-year-old broke the silence at the venue when the New York governor. Andrew Cuomo’s usual “Riders Up!” Issued remote call via video. Bugler Sam Grossman pulled down his face mask to tap his “Call to Facebook” and rode on horseback to record Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” A PA announcer introduced them to the empty grandparents.

Signs outside the lockdown venue tell gamblers that if they want to place bets on these Belmont parts, their best bet is to download an app and put it on their phone.

Perhaps Harbinger was welcomed for Tap It to Win, who came out of the gate and was ready to present the victory gift of the third Triple Crown Race to coach Mark Cass.

Instead, the Tees Act drove him from the outside and led to a four-length win.

The race was a little different 1-17 years ago, when the Sakatoga crew took a school bus to try to wrap a triple crown in their baby Fanny Seed Belmont Park, according to New York’s Sakatoga stable Nollton. Funny Seed is in third place.

It was a landmark win for 82-year-old coach Berkeley Tag, who ended his Triple Crown career after training Fanny Sid.

“It’s awesome,” Nolton says. “We just bought New York-bread, that’s our game. We don’t spend a lot of money. We have been with the Berkeley tag for 25 years. I’m telling everyone Berkeley doesn’t get a lot of big horses and big opportunities, but he knows what he can do when he gets it. “

Tag said he’s not sure the fast law will remove it until the final 100 yards. Tees Law paid $ 3.50, $ 2.90 and 60 60 2.60.

Tagg said, “I’m so glad I’ve lived so long that I’ve got one more horse like this.”

Jockey Manny Franco, 25, of Puerto Rico, entered the winning circle in his first career Belmont Steaks. He called Tees a “versatile” horse in the race, and what he showed on Saturday was simple – stalk pacemakers first, then shake them toward the house.

Dr. Post, owned by renowned trainer Todd Pletcher, paid $ 5.80 and $ 4.20, respectively. Max player paid $ 5.20 in the highest finish of a female trained horse _ Linda Rice tried to be the first woman to send a horse to win a triple crown race.

Plenty remained in line. Tees Law Nolton earned the top spot in the এক 1 million purse and the top four horses qualified for the Kentucky Derby.

Tees took advantage of the weak 10 horse field as a result of the law injury. Among the casualties were two potential entrants from renowned trainer Bob Buffart, who finished the race without a horse – a Charlotte by then, hoping to run a precaution.

Earlier Saturday, Gamine led the way in winning the বছর 300,000 Acorn Steaks by 18 3/4 lengths in a 3-year-old film.

Trained by Buffart, Gamine ran one mile at 1: 32.55, the fastest in its 90-year history. His time was off the track record of 1: 32.24 set by Nazran in 2003. Am Gamine won 50 qualifiers for the Kentucky Oaks on September 4 at Churchill Downs.

Gamine Buffart was one of two trained horses that tested positive for the banned substance in Oakland Park, Arkansas. He won a race there on May 2nd. The published report states that Gamine, including Charlatan, tested positive for lidocaine, a controlled anesthetic widely used in equine medicine.
