With Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens rode Oxbow to victory in the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes, and the Kentucky Derby winner Orb finishing fourth, horse racing fans will have to wait another year for hopes to see a Triple Crown Winner.
Traffic problems plagued Orb, who started from the No. 1 post position, and jockey Joel Rosario could not make a move to the outside quickly enough in the beginning to legitimately challenge down the stretch.
The prospective battle between Oxbow and Orb will be among the captivating developments to watch, but that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
Perhaps most notable will be Mylute, who is mounted by female jockey Rosie Napravnik. After coming in fifth and third in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness respectively, the 25-year-old has already notched landmark achievements! View Belmont Park Entries

Belmont stakes Facts and History
The Belmont Stakes was first run on June 19, 1867, at the Jerome Park race course, an oddly shaped, English-style track that required the Jockeys and horses to run three turns instead of two because of a dip in the middle of the backstretch.
A filly named “Ruthless” won the first Belmont's $1,850 winners purse, outlasting DeCourcey by a head. The race has been run every since, with the exception of 1911 and '12, and the Belmont has established itself as the ultimate test of championship stamina in this country. Its 1-1/2-mile distance now has become a rarity in American dirt races.
The Belmont was even longer in its early days at 1-5/8 miles through 1873. But from 1890 through 1926, the race dropped down to distances varying between 1-1/8 and 1-3/8 miles. The 1926 Belmont was run at 1-1/2 miles and was won by Crusader, a son of the legendary Man o' War, in a time of 2:32-1/5.
The race has been run at that distance ever since. The Belmont Stakes is also known as the "Run for the Carnations" because of the blanket of white carnations thrown over the winner's neck.
Belmont Stakes Trophy
The Belmont Stakes trophy is a Tiffany-made silver bowl, with cover, 18 inches high, 15 inches across and 14 inches at the base. Atop the cover is a silver figure of Fenian, winner of the third running of the Belmont Stakes in 1869.
The bowl is supported by three horses representing the three foundation thoroughbreds Eclipse, Herod and Matchem. The trophy, a solid silver bowl originally crafted by Tiffany's, was presented by the Belmont family as a perpetual award for the Belmont Stakes in 1926. It was the trophy August Belmont's Fenian won in 1869 and had remained with the Belmont family since that time.
The winning owner is given the option of keeping the trophy for the year their horse reigns as Belmont champion.

Belmont Stakes Past Winners
2013 Belmont Stakes Winner
The Chestnut Colt, Palace Malice was the winner at the 2013 Belmont Stakes after outlasting the field at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Palace Malice, ridden by Mike Smith and sent off at odds of 13-1, returned $29.60, $11.20 and $6.70.
The 145th Belmont Stakes was a close race entering the final turn, when Palace Malice put on the jets and separated from the pack. Palace Malice, who finished 12th in the Derby and skipped the Preakness, covered the 1 1/2 miles in a slow 2:30.70 on a fast track following a 24-hour downpour.
The colt owned by Cot Campbell's Dogwood Stable won by 3 1/4 lengths after passing pacesetter Oxbow. Orb made a late move but came up far short and finished third.
The win gave Todd Pletcher his second Belmont win in six years, and vindicated the trainer's support of a 3-year-old who came into the final leg of the Triple Crown with only one victory. The colt was one of a record five entries by Pletcher.
2012 Belmont Stakes Winner
At the wire, it was Union Rags, making its run and nipping Paynter, who nearly took it wire-to-wire, to win the Belmont Stakes.
Union Rags and jockey John Valazquez not only secured the horse's first big victory but a place in Belmont history with that dramatic finish. Union Rags skipped the Preakness and because of the Derby problems switched jockeys for the Belmont from Julien Leparoux to John Velazquez, who picked up his second Belmont victory; he won in 2007 with filly Rags to Riches.
The 3-year-old bay colt barreled through a slim opening on the rail to edge Paynter, dealing Baffert, jockey Mike Smith and owner Ahmed Zayat a third loss in this year's Triple Crown series.
Aside from his Belmont win, Union Rags also won the Fountain of Youth race this year. A third-place finish in the Florida Derby will also go in his favor.
