NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — It was a huge upset for many fans at the Belmont Stakes Saturday.
From parties to preparation, there was plenty of buildup to Saturday’s race.
As WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported, the crowd was electric with excitement before the race.
“I’ve been to sporting events all over the world. And I lived in Europe for seven years and obviously in soccer matches, football matches over there and everything and it just felt — the energy and electricity was incredible,” said Tim Carry, who traveled with his nephew from Alabama to see the race.
