Unlimited Budget taking on Belmont boys
Unlimited Budget will be the first filly since Rags to Riches to start in the Belmont.
Unlimited Budget, the daughter of 2007 Derby winner Street Sense, will become the 23rd filly to run in the Belmont Stakes Saturday. Three fillies have won the race -- Rags to Riches in 2007, Tanya in 1905 and Ruthless in 1867. Rosie Napravnik will be aboard Unlimited Budget, who finished third in the Kentucky Oaks, hoping to become the first female jockey to win aboard a filly. The two have teamed up before. Napravnik rode Unlimited Budget to a victory at the Rachel Alexandra Stakes in February.
