Speaking of Belmont breezes

Big Brown took a five-furlong spin around Belmont Tuesday, his final hard workout before the big race Saturday. Here's a video of the workout and some interviews with trainer Rick Dutrow Jr., the exercise rider, a horse racing writer and Casino Drive rider Edgar Prado. What might be the most interesting part of the video is a pretty good look at that quarter crack in Big Brown's left front hoof everyone has been talking about (at the 40 second mark). It gets a patch tomorrow. I've read a bunch of descriptions but, as they say, a picture is worth a whole bunch of consonants and vowels.
