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.
The Steve Asmussen trained Creator, who was 16-1, made the final charge to pass Lani then catch Destin at the wire and win by a nose.
Here is the full order of finish for the 148th Belmont Stakes:
4. Governor Malibu
6. Brody’s Cause
7. Cherry Wine
10. Trojan Nation
12. Seeking the Soul
13. Forever d’Oro
