Jon and Joel put a wrap on the Belmont Stakes and 2012 Triple Crown season, which was stacked full of exciting highs and disappointing lows. They discuss the potential for the second half of the year for this talented group of sophomores, along with the retirement of Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another.
Watch it. Comment.

|3||Union Rags||104||Showed improved determination in stretch of the Belmont; Still one of the best of this crop|
|4||Trinniberg||104||With Secret Circle & Discreet Dancer away, he’s proven to be the fastest around one turn|
