Tapwrit wins Belmont Stakes by 2 lengths for Pletcher

Brother Irad Ortiz Jr rode Creator to an upset win past year.

Tapwrit's victory gave Pletcher two of the three races in the Triple Crown.

Tapwrit paid $12.60 to win, $6.50 to place and $5 to show.

The exam he did not pass is one required of all horses scheduled to race. We felt like both horses suited the mile and a half distance.

"The thing I would emphasize is that this is a routine process", Palmer said. They had the right running styles and the right dispositions and the right pedigrees. Speculation on the status of early 4-1 second choice Epicharis continued to swirl Friday after the colt didn't train for a third straight day because of his sore right front hoof.

"Belmont's our home base, and I think that's always an advantage", he said.

It is the oldest event in American horse racing's esteemed Triple Crown, and - with the nickname of "Test of the Champion" - it is perhaps the hardest to win. Her father, Amory Haskell, was the first president and chairman of the Monmouth Park Jockey Club and for whom the $1 million Haskell Invitational is named.

Horse racing's stretch in the forefront of public consciousness comes to an end Saturday with the Belmont Stakes. "Tapwrit was getting a lovely trip". The 58-year-old trainer has never raced in the USA before. We were hoping he had enough left when it came to crunch time.

"That last sixteenth (of a mile) Tapwrit really dug down deep", Pletcher said. The positioning stayed the same until the final turn, when Tapwrit turned it on.

"The horse was close to being able to compete but we ran out of time", trainer Kiyoshi Hagiwara said through a translator. The longest shot in the field is 30-1 Hollywood Handsome, who along with 15-1 Meantime, didn't run in either of the first two legs. Patch, the one-eyed horse, finished in third while Gormley finished fourth.
