There was no I'll Have Another racing for a triple crown, but the Belmont Stakes was a good race all the same. Union Rags edged out Paynter passing him in the final 100 yards.
Secretariat dominated the field by 31 lengths in the 1973 Belmont Stakes and set a race record that's yet to be beaten. The victory completed a Triple Crown that also included a race record in the Kentucky Derby. Only two horses have won the Triple Crown since—Seattle Slew and Affirmed—and with I'll Have Another retiring due to injury, it won't happen this year.May 20, 2012
I'll Have Another came from behind to eke out a Preakness win over Bodemeister, becoming the 33rd horse to win both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Jockey Mario Gutierrez looks to take I'll Have Another to the first Triple Crown since 1978, and twelfth ever.
