The Belmont Stakes 2013

'Unlimited Budget' and Rosie Napravnik at the starting gate of the 2013 Belmont Stakes.

I always love the energy from the crowd as they sing "New York, New York" while the starting gate is put into place.  

 Front row view "and they're off!" 

Front row view "and they're off!" 

Check out that stride! The Thoroughbreds sound like thunder. So powerful.
