Here’s how the spreadsheet looks:
Retama Park and Sweetwater Downs are off; the rest remain on the calendar as compared to last year’s 2YO season. The 3YO season remains intact, laying in wait until the individual tracks make their announcements. I source these details from the Bloodhorse Stakes Calendar page.
Belmont Stakes was a huge success, as I picked the trifecta box of Sir Winston, Tacitus and Joevia. Keeping finances at a minimum, I did not play any races this day, but it would have been a nice payout of $22.40 for the win, and $1244 for the trifecta.
