Belmont Stakes has taken place way back in 1867 when jockey Gilbert Patrick and horse Ruthless won the race. The race had a hiatus for two years in 1911 and 1912, but has gone on from 1913 up through present date. Last year’s winner was Drosselmeyer with jockey Mike Smith. The Belmont race is also referred to as “The Test of Champions” or “Run for the Carnations” and features the winning horse blanketed with white carnations.
