The 2013 Belmont Stakes was the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes, the third jewel in the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. The race was held on June 8, 2013.[1] For the third consecutive year, the race was run without the Triple Crown being at stake as 2013 Kentucky Derby winner Orb was defeated in the 2013 Preakness Stakes by Oxbow.

The race was won by Palace Malice in 2:30.70. Oxbow finished second and Orb third.[2]

The official attendance was 47,562.[3]

Field[edit source | edit]

Both the Kentucky Derby winner Orb and the Preakness Stakes winner Oxbow entered the race.[4] This was the 21st time that the winner of the Kentucky Derby and the winner of the Preakness Stakes competed in the race.[5] A total of fourteen horses entered the race, tying for the second-largest field for the third time in the race's history.[5]

Orb was the morning line favorite.[4] Trainer Todd Pletcher entered a record 5 horses in the race,[5] including the filly Unlimited Budget who was attempting to become the second filly to win the race in the modern era after Pletcher's 2007 winner Rags to Riches.[4] Ridden by Rosie Napravnik, who was the first woman jockey to ride all three Triple Crown races in a single year, the filly-and-female-jockey story garnered considerable press.[6]

Race[edit source | edit]

Oxbow held the lead late into the race until Palace Malice passed him with a quarter-mile to go. Palace Malice eventually won by 314 lengths. Orb made a run from back in the pack and finished third.[7]
