Triple Crown: Street Sense will not race in the Belmont Stakes

The winner of the Kentucky Derby, Street Sense, will not race in the upcoming Belmont Stakes.

Triple Crown: Street Sense will not race in the Belmont StakesCarl Nafzger, trainer of Street Sense, announced that he will give the horse a break. According to Nafzger, their goal was the Triple Crown, and after Street Sense was beaten in the Preakness, those dreams are out of the window.

At a news conference at Churchill Downs, Carl Nafzger said that everyone believed they could go all the way and win the Triple Crown, but after Curlin won the Preakness Stakes, it was time to give the colt a rest. Decision has been made to move on and Street Sense will compete later this year in the Travers Stakes and Breeders' Cup Classic.

Curlin and Hard Spun will take part in the Belmont Stakes race, which starts on June 9th. With Street Sense out of the picture, Curlin is now the favorite to win the 139th Belmont Stakes. Hard Spun finished third in the Preakness and second at the Kentucky Derby race.
