Affirmed may have been the triple crown winner but alydar was the best sire of the 2. It's sad they met tragic ends
Dullahan also skipped for the Belmont, I'll Have Another's Preakness race was a close one though Bodimeister's owner CLAIMS to say he won't participate in the Belmont. So that APPARENTLY bucks out some (if not most) of the competition, but there's still so much stacked against him. My biggest fear is that he'll break down in the final stretch for the finish.
