While there wasn’t a Triple Crown winner this year, it was still exciting watching some of the best race horses battle it out in New York at the 154th Belmont Stakes. Mo Donegal, the favorite for this race, took the victory with 2:28:28.

Rich Strike, who won the Kentucky Derby last month, came into the race at 7-2 odds, according to CBS Sports. Meanwhile, We the People (2-1) and Mo Donegal (5-2) were also among the Belmont favorites, having won the Peter Pan Stakes and Wood Memorial respectively. Golden Glider and Skippylongstockings rounded out the 2022 Belmont Stakes field as 20-1 longshots. 

This is Hall of Fame trainer Todd Pletcher’s fourth time winning the Belmont Stakes.
