June 9th - A Great Day in Belmont History

June 9, 1973 “moving like a tremendous machine!”

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.
