Tapwrit wins the Belmont Stakes

Pletcher took two of the year's three Triple Crown races, having saddled Always Dreaming to victory in the Derby.

Also, here's a look at the latest odds and post positions. Finishing in second was Irish War Cry, followed by Patch in third.

Always Dreaming's loss to surprise victor Cloud Computing at the Preakness stripped this year's Belmont of any Triple Crown drama. The winning jockey, Jose Ortiz, is perennially at the top of the New York Racing Association's rider standings. "I can't explain, I'm very happy right now, very happy for the owners who gave me the ride".

Only one favorite has won the Belmont in the past 10 years (American Pharoah, 2015).

ELMONT, N.Y. -? Belmont Park crowned another champion Saturday - just not one of the triple variety.

The road to the winner's circle in the Belmont Stakes ran through the Kentucky Derby, even if the Derby and Preakness winners skipped the final leg of the Triple Crown.

Irish War Cry set the pace early, as many expected them to. Gormley finished fourth and completed the $2 superfecta of $4,486. Irish War Cry paid $4.70 for second and completed the $2 exacta of $45.20.

"We kind of hoped that somebody else would go for (the lead), but he had to go to plan "B" and (jockey) Rajiv (Maragh) did a great job", Motion said.

"Tapwrit was getting a lovely trip", Pletcher said.

"Tapwrit was getting a lovely trip", Pletcher said. We were hoping he had enough when it came to crunch time.

"That last sixteenth (of a mile) Tapwrit really dug down deep", Pletcher said.

Pletcher, who is set to run American Patriot in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot later this month, said afterwards, "Tapwrit was getting a attractive trip". "Each of these races individually stand on their own as major, major races and huge wins", he said. Pletcher has yet to win the Preakness. Lookin At Lee was seventh, Meantime eighth, J Boys Echo ninth, Multiplier 10th and Hollywood Handsome DNF-11th. He has steadily been gaining more notoriety, riding mostly on the NYRA circuit. He was also a finalist for an Eclipse Award.

Jody Demling of CBS Sports and SportsLine has picked the last nine Kentucky Derby winners, and he plans to hold a ticket for Tapwrit by the time the race starts tonight. I'm very proud of how he ran.

Patch's breeding suggested that the distance wouldn't be an issue.

The pre-race exam is standard for all Belmont runners.

In a Triple Crown season that saw its share of rain, the weather on Long Island afternoon was glorious.

As Mor Spirit crossed the finish line, track announcer Larry Collmus bellowed, "Bob Baffert and Mike Smith are un-".

Saturday's 11-horse field included horses with varied amounts of success, but none had made it to the winner's circle in the Triple Crown. The last five weeks have been the ultimate rollercoaster for us. Besides last year's race, he finished sixth aboard Samraat in 2014.

The 23-year-old native of Puerto Rico saw his horse respond.
