Tapwrit wins 2017 Belmont Stakes

Irish War Cry drew the No. 7 post under jockey Rajiv Maragh. The $1.5 million race also is without Kentucky Derby victor Always Dreaming and Preakness victor Cloud Computing.

The 149th running of the Belmont Stakes - the third jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown - is set for Saturday.

The New York Racing Association said the exam revealed continued inflammation in the Japanese colt's right front hoof.

In the final race before the big one, I am hoping to see Time Test win his first race on United States soil after moving from the United Kingdom over the winter.

However, Epicharis was found to be lame of his off-fore on Wednesday and was not deemed able to take part when checked over by a vet on Saturday. The winner's share of the purse is $800,000 (88,236,744 yen). "Tapwrit was getting a handsome trip. Right now they're very comfortable that the horse is comfortable and much better than he was two days ago". Compared to the laid back tunes of "My Old Kentucky Home" and "Maryland, My Maryland" for the Derby and Preakness, the Belmont's anthem, "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra, swings hard. Obviously the third leg of the Triple Crown always has a bit of intrigue due to the length of the race.

Belmont Park's sweeping turns and deep, sandy track is similar to those in Japan.

"A mile and a half is a long way to go, but in his previous races he has shown us some stamina", Lemaire said. "He should stay the trip".

Panza said Thursday and Friday, after Epicharis was not sent out to train, that the horse was "walking sound" in the quarantine barn. Like the Kentucky Derby and its Mint Julep or the Preakness and its Black-Eyed Susan, the Belmont has an official drink: the Belmont Jewel. He hasn't raced since finishing second in the UAE Derby on March 25.

Hagiwara trained 2009 Japanese Derby victor Logi Universe, the only Group 1 victor so far in his career. "The distance, I was sure he could handle it". The Belmont Stakes is the pick of those and Japanese raider Epicharis heads what is a fascinating field. "I think he ran a sneaky good race in the Derby", Pletcher said of Tapwrit.

"Every time a Japanese horse competes overseas, it's a big event for Japanese fans and the Japanese horse racing world", Lemaire said.

Despite Epicharis' scratch, there will still be separate, non-comingled wagering on the Belmont in Japan. "A big tsunami maybe".
