The Slice

It’s all anticlimax after 1973

So the Belmont Stakes is Saturday. It will be nice for the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners to have a rubber match. Assuming that is, that they'll both be in the race.

I guess I could show a little more interest and actually find out. But for some of us of a certain age, the one and only Belmont Stakes that really matters took place almost 40 years ago. It will never be topped.
