Belmont 2012 Results: Union Rags Steals The Show

No, I'll Have Another didn't in fact have another, but the 2012 Belmont Stakes was still quite the race. Union Rags came from behind to defeat Paynter in a photo finish to claim the Belmont Stakes crown.

Union Rags, as you may recall, was favored to win the Kentucky Derby, but struggled out of the gate and never was in contention to win. Despite that, Union Rags was given 3-1 odds to win the Belmont -- odds that he made good on.

The full results for the 2012 Belmont Stakes are as follows:

  1. Union Rags
  2. Paynter
  3. Atigun
  4. Street Life
  5. Five Sixteen
  6. Unstoppable U
  7. Dullahan
  8. My Adonis
  9. Ravelo's Boy
  10. Optimizer
  11. Guyana Star Dweej
A $2 exacta bet paid out $31.40, while a $2 trifecta wager paid off $496. If you someway, somehow hit the superfecta, a $2 wager paid out $1,906 -- not too shabby.
