2012 Belmont Stakes Winner
Union Rags skipped the Preakness and because of the Derby problems switched jockeys for the Belmont – from Julien Leparoux to John Velazquez, who picked up his second Belmont victory; he won in 2007 with filly Rags to Riches. Union Rags, the 5-2 second choice, ran the 1 1/2 miles in 2:30.42.
2011 Belmont Stakes Winner
Ruler On Ice, trained by New Jersey-based Kelly Breen, did not run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown. The 3-year-old didn't have enough graded stakes earnings to qualify for the Derby, but vindicated his trainer's faith by defeating a field that included the first seven finishers in the Run for the Roses. He became the second gelding, along with Creme Fraiche in 1985, to win the Belmont.
2010 Belmont Stakes Winner
The win by the gleaming 3-year-old chestnut colt Drosselmeyer, ended Smith's 0 for 12 riding record in the Belmont, and gave Mott his first victory in a Triple Crown race.
With neither Derby winner Super Saver nor Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky in the field, the 1½-mile Belmont looked to be a matchup of classic runner-ups — Ice Box from the Derby vs. First Dude from the Preakness.
Drosselmeyer made a four wide move on the final turn and continued widest of all, eventually reeling in First Dude and then holding off a late charge from Fly Down.
