The Belmont Oaks, formerly the Garden City Stakes, is run on July 4th as part of the Stars and Stripes Festival at Belmont Park. Open to three year old fillies, the 1 1/4 mile turf race guarantees the winner entry into the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf. The “Win and You’re In” Breeders’ Cup race will be featured on NBC at 5 p.m. ET.
Highlighting the race is the Chad Brown trained Lady Eli. Fresh off a win in the Wonder Again Stakes at Belmont Park, she will look to remain undefeated with a win in the Oaks.
If Lady Eli is to stay unbeaten, she will have to hold off some stiff competition, including American Oaks champ, Spanish Queen and another Brown trained filly, Consumer Credit.
Brisnet has everything you need and more to handicap the entire Stars and Stripes Day card.
