    Betcha didn't know that Commissioner's 10f split in the Belmont was 2:02.43. That puts him six lengths ahead of California Chrome's 2:03.66 for the Derby.

    Speaking of which: Rags to Riches nosed Curlin out of the 2007 Belmont. It'd be a longshot - he hasn't won a stakes race yet - but if Ride On Curlin was to avenge his old man it be poetic as well...
