2004 Belmont Entries

Date: 06/02/2004


Smarty Jones drew the outside No. 9 post position for his quest to win the 136th running of the Belmont Stakes and the $5 million Visa Triple Crown bonus Wednesday morning at Belmont Park. As expected, he was set as the 2-5 morning line favorite with Peter Pan winner Purge next at 5-1 followed by Preakness runner-up Rock Hard Ten at 9-1.

The $1 million Belmont Stakes will be run as the 11th of 13 races on Saturday and is schedule to go at approximately 6:38 pm EDT. Below is the list of entrants in post position order. Be sure to click each horse's name to see a full profile with lots of information plus a photo. Smarty Jones has been training like a tiger and all systems are go, so hopefully this year we won't be disappointed.
