Unlimited Budget in Pursuit of Carnations

On June 8, fourteen horses will head to post for the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes. Among those horses will be one that stands out from the rest. That horse is the filly, Unlimited Budget.

 

Throughout history, only three fillies have been able to claim the final prize of the Triple Crown. Those valiant fillies were Ruthless (1867), Tanya (1905), and Rags to Riches (2007). Now, Unlimited Budget will be attempting to add her name to that exalted list.

 

So far, the bay daughter of Street Sense has been a successful racehorse. Unlimited Budget started off her career with four consecutive wins. Three of those wins include: the Demoiselle Stakes, the Rachel Alexandra Stakes, and the Fair Ground Oaks. Currently, the only blemish on the big filly's record is a third place effort in the Kentucky Oaks.

 

Unlimited Budget will be joining forces with jockey, Rosie Napravnik to take on the colts for the first time. There will be a lot on the line for the pair in this male dominated sport. Should the filly defeat the boys, Napravnik will have her first victory in a Triple Crown race, and will become only the second woman to win the Belmont Stakes.
