It was a good race, I was hoping Bodiemeister would win it, but the pace was so fast that he set and he just tired at the end and the winning horse came on strong and was still going at the win... the win wasn't bad for a young jockey and a horse that was purchased for $35,000......

I'd say he has a decent shot. His strength is coming on strong at the end while the pacesetters tire out, which is a real strength for a long course like Belmont.

Yep... but supposedly there is two or three horses scheduled to run Belmont who sat out Derby and Preakness so they will be rested, which begs the question -- which is better rested or train, train, train.. which is what they did Secretariat to prepare him for the gruel of Belmont when he won the triple crown.
