What are the odds? On the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on Sunday, horses wearing the numbers 9, 1 and 1 won the first three races at Belmont.      

The New York City track served as one of the staging areas for workers and emergency vehicles in the days following the destruction of the World Trade Center.      

David Jacobson, the trainer at the stable that owns the first two winners, tells the New York Post that the odds "were probably about a million to one.''      

Actually, the pick three paid $18.60 for a $2 bet.
