A photo finish closed the Belmont Stakes, as Creator edged out Destin by a nose for the victory.
Lani made a late charge after a poor start to finish third.
The favorite, Exaggerator, wasn’t able to win another prestigious race following a victory at the Preakness Stakes a few weeks ago. He couldn’t make a final push and never found his way to second place or higher at any point in the race. Exaggerator finished 11th.
Here are the payout results from the 2016 Belmont Stakes (dollar figures via NBC broadcast).
Creator: Win ($34.80), Place ($14.60), Show ($9.40)
Destin: Place ($9.40), Show ($6.20)
Lani: Show ($6.60)
