In this weekly piece, we’ll bring you the best of new arrivals to the Thoroughbred world. So sit back, relax, and take in the Cute Foals of the Week for 2019! Want to see cute foals in person?

The Belmont Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets June 8 closed an exciting Triple Crown season with an 80-degree day, a terrific crowd, and fantastic races.

Everybody wants to avoid a tax, and that even carries over to some of the owners of the equine Tax, who will compete in the June 8 Belmont Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets at Belmont Park.

Although there will be no Triple Crown on the line when the 151stBelmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets is run on Saturday at Belmont Park, the tradition-rich mile-and-a-half contest still carries great weight. The last of the spring classics could establish a leader of the 3-year-old division, depending on the outcome.
