We’ve got your horse right here: Belmont Edition

Find horse racing boring? Cheer with your favorite RoughRiders player and their horse today!

Coverage is underway and the horses post at 5:30 CT.

Just like in the horse racing, no RoughRider won both of the first two legs of predictions. Phil Klein took the Derby with the selection of Orb. Four players won the Preakness States with Oxbox: Jimmy Reyes, Odubel Herrera, Chih-Hsien Chiang and Ben Rowen

While no one can take all three legs of “We’ve got your horse right” series, if one of the previous winners predicts correctly today they could be the only to select two legs right. If Vyjack wins today, both Ben Rowen and Odubel Herrera would have two wins, but the other three winners are spread over three horse selections.

Like the previous two, the RoughRiders were told the names of the horse but not their odds. Without further ado:
