Despite the absence of ‘I’ll Have Another,’ the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes still occurred, and ‘Union Rags’ claimed the victory.
Jeez, how about Bob Baffert getting beat in the Belmont just the exact same way he did in the Derby and Preakness w/ a different horse

I love Union Rags, but I can't help but think I'll Have Another would have won this Belmont. The last half mile looked laborious.
