Tapwrit has won the Belmont over Irish War Cry with an unofficial time of 2:30.02. It looked as though Irish War Cry was going to pull away, but Tapwrit caught Irish War Cry on the final turn to pull away at the very end.
The 2017 Belmont was anyone’s best guess with two of the favorites scratched from the race. Heavy will have the full results and betting payouts as soon as they are released.
Irish War Cry entered the race as the slight favorite. Japanese horse Epicharis was expected to contend in the race but was scratched on race morning.
Classic Empire would have been favored but was scratched the week of the race with a foot abscess.
Lookin at Lee was the only horse to compete in all three Triple Crown races. Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming and Preakness winner Cloud Computing did not compete in the Belmont. Trainer Chad Brown opted to take Twisted Tom to the Belmont rather than Cloud Computing.
Heavy will have the Belmont results as soon as they are released.
