Belmont Stakes Results of Recent Years

Belmont Stakes Results 2024

Kentucky Derby 10th Dornoch recaptured the promising form shown as a juvenile with a shock victory in the Belmont. He held off the late challenge from the unexposed Mindframe and secured an upset at Saratoga where the winners of the other Triple Crown races didn’t fire.

A tardy start proved costly for the favorite Sierra Leone, who had too much ground to make up from the rear but got third. Belmont Stakes 2024 results have that front trio clear of the rest of the field. Honor Marie had another hard luck story with the Kentucky Derby sixth again squeezed out early, but keeping on into a never nearer fourth spot.

Todd Pletcher’s barn had the fifth and sixth in Antiquarian and Protective alongside the second. They were home in front of Preakness Stakes hero Seize The Grey and Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan. Here are the complete 2024 Belmont Stakes results and finishing order:

Belmont Stakes 2019 Results

What Can Past Belmont Stakes Results Today Tell Us?

The results from the Belmont Stakes over past ten years, tell us plenty about what to expect for the 2024 edition of the famous race.

During that period, only four of the ten favorites won. So, if you were continually bet the favorite each year, you would have lost money. On three occasions when a horse came to the Belmont with a chance of winning the Triple Crown, two of them won. That might be something to consider if a horse wins the other legs.

In seven of the ten races, it was won by a horse that was amongst the top three favorites. The biggest priced winner was Sir Winston at 12/1 in 2019, so there are bigger Belmont Stakes payouts occasionally.

There aren’t many conclusions we can draw from the post positions of the winner. Gate 2 won on two occasions, but every other winner had a different post position. It’s true that an outside draw produced more Belmont Stakes winners than those in center field or on the fence.
