2012 Belmont Stakes: It's Handicapping Time!

There is nothing better than sitting alone while reading your Form.
There is nothing better than sitting alone while reading your Form.

The anticipation is building for Saturday's Belmont Stakes, with time winding down to get our handicapping house in order. A couple of items to take note of over the next couple of days at this site and SB Nation.

  • We've got a 2012 Belmont Stakes StoryStream going over at the mothership, where I've contributed several posts. Yesterday, I did a feature on the 11 Triple Crown winners (The Triple Crown: From Sir Barton to Affirmed), and sometime today there will be a piece I wrote on the Triple Crown failures since 1978. Be sure to check those out if you're dying to read more Belmont coverage.
  • I'm going to be on TribLive Radio - Sports Talk Radio Pittsburgh at 2:00pm Eastern on Friday afternoon to discuss Saturday's Belmont Stakes. You can listen live at
  • The weather forecast for Belmont Park is looking pretty good right now, with sunny/partly cloudy skies and temperatures around 80 expected on Saturday. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms throughout the afternoon and evening on Friday and Saturday, so let's hope for that 70%.

I'll have my head deep in past performances for much of the rest of this afternoon and tonight; I'll have a Belmont Stakes Day Preview tomorrow taking a look at all of Saturday's undercard.

Happy Handicapping!
