Unless there’s a severe bias tilted toward the inside or outside portion of the track, most dirt races are contested with small or medium-sized fields around a surface with the widest turns, an ideal mix for clean trips.

The 2018 Triple Crown season is over, leaving behind a wealth of memories, topped by the undefeated Justify’s victory in the Belmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets that served as his coronation as the 13th Triple Crown champion.
