Welcome to Belmont Stakes 2012 results coverage! This live online web article will present updates from Saturday's horse race, including the winner, order of finish, and more. The race is scheduled for a post time of 6:40PM EST on NBC with live streaming online coverage as well.
The Belmont Stakes results will not yield a Triple Crown winner for 2012, which has left many fans disappointed. It would have been the first time this accolade was achieved in over thirty years. Affirmed was the last to accomplish the feat in 1978, while Sir Barton (pictured) was the first ever to make history, back in 1919. I'll Have Another brought an excitement to the sport once again, which was doused by the news on Friday.
However, the fact A Triple Crown winner won't emerge today should not take away from the excitement of today's race. There are eleven hopefuls remaining with Dullahan and Union Rags among the favorites at Elmont, New York. Street Life and Paynter shouldn't be counted out either, although it could end up being "any horse's race" today.
Race coverage of the 144th running of this race begins on television and Belmont live stream at 4:30PM EST from the track. There will be some background stories told, most likely focusing on the top contenders, and of course the unfortunate story of I'll Have Another. There will also be analyst commentary and predictions made prior to the actual race.
Once the race begins, the latest updated Belmont results will be listed in the comments section below. Upon the completion, the Belmont Stakes 2012 winner, and top 3 order of finish will also be on display below. To all sports fans enjoy today's race, and to the field of contenders, may the best horse (and jockey) win!
