Who won the Belmont Stakes in 2020? Full results, finish order & highlights from the race

In the first time the Triple Crown series of races has ever started at Belmont Park, the Belmont Stakes saw its first New York-bred victor since 1882 in Tiz The Law.

The Saturday race was claimed by almost four lengths, as Tiz The Law came on strong at the end to blow past the rest of the 10-horse field.

Jockey Manny Franco, who rode Tiz The Law across the finish line, claimed the first Triple Crown triumph of his young career.

Who won the Belmont Stakes in 2020?

Tiz The Law won the Belmont Stakes with a late flourish, bursting past a fading Tap It To Win down the stretch by almost four lengths. Tiz The Law finished ahead of second-placed Dr Post and third-placed Max Player. Tap It To Win dropped all the way back to fifth place.

The Tiz The Law team gets a $1 million reward for its horse’s finish.
