We could have our first Triple Crown champion in 36 years on Saturday. The odds are looking good for California Chrome.

California Chrome is the early 3-5 favorite to win the Belmont Stakes and become horse racing’s 12th Triple Crown champion. He’ll  break from the No. 2 post under Victor Espinoza.

If you’re looking for an omen for California Chrome. He’s listed No. 2 in the betting program, the same number as 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat, who won the Belmont by a record 31 length.

We can’t forget the drink. The Belmont drink is the Belmont Jewel.  It’s 1.5 oz Woodford Reserve (Kentucky Bourbon), 2 oz Lemonade and 1 oz Pomegranate Juice.  Shake vigorously with ice and serve in a rocks glass with ice.  Garnish with Red cherry or lemon twist and enjoy.

Coverage for the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes begins at 5 on NBC 5 with post time around 6:35.
