Tiz the Law is class of Belmont field, Triple Crown favorite

In this March 28, 2020, image provided by Gulfstream Park, Tiz the Law, ridden by Manuel Franco, foreground, runs in the Florida Derby horse race at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla. Tiz the Law looks every bit like the best 3-year-old in the world and is the Triple Crown favorite, so it’ll take something spectacular from a watered-down field to prevent him from becoming the first New York-bred horse to win the Belmont in over 130 years and take a powerful stride toward the Kentucky Derby.

While there won’t be school buses of fans hoping to see a New York-bred horse make Belmont history, there is a busload of Triple Crown expectations heading into Saturday’s race.
