Bold Forbes wins 1976 Belmont Stakes

June 14, 1976 by William Leggett Of the 11 horses entered in the Belmont on Thursday, only two—Charleston and Best Laid Plans—seemed to have enough early speed to run with Bold Forbes. On Friday Charleston went lame and was scratched. And on Saturday Best Laid Plans did not challenge until midway in the race and then fell back. Both were breaks for Bold Forbes.
