Like a lot in 2020, the Belmont Stakes took place Saturday under some abnormal conditions.

Tap It To Win maintained a slight lead on his competitors for much of the race, with Fore Left and Tiz The Law nipping at his heels throughout. The pack was tight around the final corner, but Tiz The Law managed to pull away from the pack down the stretch and claim the first jewel of the Triple Crown.
