Belmont Stakes 2024 winner, results: Dornoch scores upset victory at Saratoga giving former MLBer Jayson Werth a win on the track (2024)

yahoo sports staff · sean leahy

Dornoch (17-1) scored an upset victory in the 156th Belmont Stakes Saturday, and along with the blanket of carnations, West Paces Racing — co-owned by former MLB All-Star and World Series champion Jayson Werth — takes home $1.2 million with the victory, while jockey Luis Saez takes home his second Belmont Stakes win after winning aboard Essential Quality in 2021.

Preakness Stakes winner Seize The Gray set the early pace, and led the race over the first 3/4 of a mile that came in a 1:10.67. From there Seize The Gray faded, and that‘s where Dornoch and Mindframe raced to the front and kicked away from the field around the far turn and into the stretch.

Favorite Sierra Leone bided his time throughout the race and made a move late to hit the board in third, while Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan was a non-factor throughout the race.

For the sixth straight year three different horses won the three legs of the Triple Crown. The last time a horse won more than one in a year was when Justify became only the second horse since Affirmed in 1977 to win the Triple Crown, with American Pharoah being the other Triple Crown winner in 2015.

While the racing will continue throughout the year, the end of the 2024 Triple Crown season means the end of Bob Baffert's ban at the Kentucky Derby. The most polarizing trainer in thoroughbred horse racing will have the opportunity to participate in all three races for the first time since 2020.

    A "Live" look at Belmont Park

    The Belmont Stakes is being held at Saratoga this year because of a major renovation project at Belmont Park on Long Island. Not sure exactly what these track conditions would be, but surely, they'll be good for the 2026 Belmont when the Test of the Champion returns to its home.
