BELMONT STAKES


Here, below (thanks to NBC) is a video of the running of the Belmont States.


It was an exciting race, with RULER ON ICE (an unheralded longshot, but with top ancestry -- he's the grandson of Fusaichi Pegasus, the 2000 Kentucky Derby winner) coming in first, followed closely by the next two finishers, STAY THIRSTY and BRILLIANT SPEED.

The race was decided only in the last few seconds, with Shackleford, winner of the Preakness, leading most of the race, but then fading to fifth in the final quarter mile. Animal Kingdom, the Kentucky Derby winner and Monzon bumped into each other shortly after the start of the race, nearly unseating jockey John Velazquez on Animal Kingdom, and almost dumping the horse. After horse and rider recovered, Animal Kingdom made a race for the front, but only reached sixth place.
