Belmont Stakes 2012

Belmont StakesSaturday, June 09, 2012, 6:00 – 7:00 pm

The race is the third and final leg of the US Triple Crown, following exactly five weeks after the Kentucky Derby, and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes. Consequently, it is run on Saturday, but never before June 5, nor after June 11.

The Belmont Stakes is traditionally called “The Test of Champions” or “Run for the Carnations” because the winning horse is blanketed with white carnations.

A lot of excitement had been generated this year as Triple Crown hopeful “I’ll Have Another” was expected to run at the Belmont Stakes. But the prize horse who won both the Preakness and the Kentucky Derby was pulled out of the race the day before, citing tendonitis as the reason for withdrawal. “I’ll Have Another” will not be running in any more races and has been permanently retired.

The winner at this year’s race was “Union Rags”, who beat out “Paynter” in a very close, thrilling finish.
