2020 Belmont Stakes results: Tiz the Law wins 152nd Belmont Stakes

Tiz the Law wins 2020 Belmont Stakes

Barclay Tagg's Tiz the Law has become the first New York-bred horse to win the Belmont Stakes since Forester in 1882. The heavy 6-5 morning line favorite broke from the No. 8 with jockey Manny Franco aboard in his first Triple Crown ride.

Tiz the Law settled in behind pace setter Tap It to Win before surging after the one and only turn of the shortened Belmont Stakes and running away with the win by 3 3/4-lengths. Todd Pletcher's Dr Post was second, and Linda Rice campaigned third place finisher Max Player.

Tiz the Law went off at 4/5 odds and paid $3.60 to win, $2.90 to place and $2.60 to show. At 7-1 odds, Dr Post paid $5.80 to place and $4.20 to show, and Max Player paid $5.20 to show with 14-1 odds.

The win, which comes in an unconventional year where a shortened Belmont Stakes comes first instead of last in the Triple Crown, was especially sweet for Tagg and Tiz the Law's owners Sackatoga Stable. In 2003, the trainer and owner partnership campaigned Funny Cide, who fell just short of a Triple Crown by finishing 3rd in the Belmont Stakes after winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness.
