June 9, 1984 “and Swale le-e-e-eads to the wire!”
June 9, 2007 “it’s going to be a filly in the Belmont!”
Looking back at the history of the Belmont Stakes, June 9th , was a pretty special day. We had a Triple Crown winner in ’73 winning by 31 lengths, the third of Woody Steven’s 5 consecutive Belmont winners in '84 ( though that ended very sadly 8 days later) and a filly beating colts in '07 for only the third time in history, in a thrilling stretch drive.
