Even though a Triple Crown won't be on the line, The Belmont stakes could make racing history.
Should Street Sense, Curlin and Hard Spun run in the Belmont June 9 it would be the first time the same top three finishers in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness met again in the final jewel of the Triple Crown.
Street Sense won the Kentucky Derby, with Hard Spun second and Curlin third. Curlin won last week's Preakness, with Street Sense second and Hard Spun third.
The possibility has occurred only five times, but according to the New York Racing Association, each time only two of the three horses showed up for the mile-and-a-half Belmont.
