Belmont Stakes Preview: Oxbow
As the post time for the 145th Belmont Stakes draws closer, the long awaited rubber match between Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Preakness winner Oxbow continues to heat up.
Oxbow’s jockey Gary Stevens is a main reason why the 15-1 horse was able to take home the prize in Pimlico. Stevens, who began his comeback after a 7-year retirement this January, already boasts 3 Belmont Stakes victories along with 3 in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. This Saturday June 8th, Stevens with the help of Oxbow and trainer D. Wayne Lukas, looks to add a fourth Belmont victory to his illustrious career.
I had a chance to sit down with Gary at the Belmont Media Luncheon.
