    Here are the field sizes for the Belmont's in which a TC was won. It wasn't until War Admiral that the TC started to become recognized as a "thing." Despite what has to be considered one of the...

    Some are nicer draping than others. The Ariat, RJ and Tredstep are the easiest fitting, IMO. Some of them drape less well and have a somewhat rumpled look, which I don't care for.

    His dam was 22 when he was born and as such he has an "old" pedigree. Not often you see Nasrullah in the 4th generation and Alydar in the 2nd. I like him and if I were close and shopping, he'd be on...

    In England, I would guess that the courses, the old ones at least, were designed around the topography. Many have several "courses" with an assortment of turns, hills, etc.

    The tent sales are great for the ambitious shopper, think the old Filene's Basement on clearance. If you go looking for "stuff" you may come away happy. OTOH, if you are hoping to find "X" in size...
