1986 Belmont Stakes - Part 3
The railbirds began chanting ''Woody! Woody! Woody!'' in midstretch, as Danzig Connection under Chris McCarron pulled away to win the 118th Belmont Stakes yesterday and provide his trainer, Woody Stephens, with his fifth straight and most improbable winner of the final leg of the Triple Crown. Said Stephens: "The track was sloppy for the Belmont and Danzig Connection moved with Charlie's horse (the Charlie Whittingham-trained Ferdinand). He just opened up when they came to him and no one was going to get him if they had gone around again. "I think this win gave me the most satisfaction because here was a horse with a chip in his knee, and I nominated him to all three Triple Crown races knowing I couldn't make the Derby or the Preakness."
