A special edition of the Across the Board with Andy Serling podcast features audio from the roundtable discussion of Tuesday's post-position draw at Citi Field for the 151st running of the Grade 1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets on Saturday, June 8.
Hosted by Serling, the roundtable segment featured Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott joined by revered trainers Todd Pletcher, Mark Casse and Dale Romans as they discussed their respective entrants in Saturday's Belmont. The race is led by 9-5 morning-line favorite Tacitus, trained by Mott and 2-1 second choice War of Will for Casse, winner of this year's Preakness and the only horse competing in all three Triple Crown races.
With four Belmont Stakes victories and eight Triple Crown race wins among them in total, the four also discussed their experience on this year's Triple Crown trail and each of their respective journeys in becoming among the most respected horsemen in the sport.
