BELMONT PARK, NY. -- There isn't a Triple Crown winner this year. Big Brown, the winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, failed to win the Belmont Stakes.
The winner was Da' Tara. In their only meeting, Da' Tara finished 23 and a-half lengths behind Big Brown in the Florida Derby earlier in the year. Da' Tara was a 38-to-1 longshot to win the Belmont Stakes.
Big Brown was trying to become the first Triple Crown winner in 30 years. The three-year old was racing with an injured hoof, which required special attention from a hoof specialist over the last week.
