The third jewel of horse racing’s triple crown, The Belmont Stakes, ran Saturday and it was Creator who nipped Destin at the wire to take home the victory.

Preakness winner Exaggerator, who went off as the 9-5 favorite, was in position to make a move but he never responded at the top of the stretch. He finished 11th.
