The Belmont Stakes long ago sold out on traditions and culture.
Look none of us here give a **** that they want to show 5 hours of hats and food and shoes. The problem comes when they advertise the game as a national telecast and then all of a sudden don't show it on ANY NBC network.

Like I said I found it by luck on some made up cable channel having nothing to do with NBC and hell I even googled the local papers and the Baltimore papers and both had the game listed on NBC.

I don't care if hats and food bring them more money, but at least move it somewhere people can watch or put out a press release or something? I'm sure people in Baltimore didn't give a **** about the Indy 500 trials on NBCSN, coulda put it on there just as easy.
