Belmont Stakes has a history of ruining Triple Crown dreams

“It was a challenge for me, a very demanding track,” says Espinoza, the Mexican-born jockey, referring to his early experience at Belmont. “What happened, with War Emblem, everything was smooth, everything was going fine. Even inside the gate (at Belmont), it was perfectly fine until the doors opened. That completely changed the strategy. Everything went in a different direction that I was not expecting. When he stumbled, it was a surprise. Next thing I know, I tightened my body really hard because I thought I was going to hit the ground. Luckily I had a little balance and the horse pushed me back into the saddle.”
