2002 Belmont Contenders
Despite winning both the Derby and Preakness most don't believe War
Emblem is the real thing, so another large field is starting to take
shape for the Belmont. Get the latest list of probables with links to

Can War Emblem win the Triple Crown?
RAESFAN writes, "I think he used a lot of energy early in the Preakness.
He seemed to be fighting Espinoza even as he chased fast fractions. He
may have used more energy than if he had been allowed to run on. I also
am convinced that he can relax even while running crisp fractions. If
allowed the lead early in the Belmont, the race is over. If no rabbits
are entered to entice WE to fight Espinoza and use up some energy for at
least 6f, we will see a TC winner."

More Belmont Early Picks
TELEVIN writes, "It would seem that of the last TC candidates, War
Emblem has something that Charismatic, Silver Charm and Real Quiet
didn't and that is natural speed. If you look at the last 3 TC winners,
Secretariat, Slew and Affirmed, they all controlled their own destiny by
going to the front. Charismatic did try to run up close, but that was
clearly a change in his style. I think barring injury, War Emblem has
the best chance to win the TC since Spectacular Bid was Franklinized."
