Longines Race of the Week: Tapwrit takes Belmont Stakes glory
The latest Longines Race of the Week comes from the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York – the third jewel of the Triple Crown.
In the absence of Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming and Preakness champion Cloud Computing, the powerful and fresh Tapwrit cruised to the title in 1 ½-mile Test of Champions in a thrilling race.
Tapwrit, trained by Todd Pletcher, was ridden to glory by Jose Ortiz. It was Pletcher’s third Belmont Stakes win, while Ortiz secured his maiden triumph.
