Rags to Riches Tops the Boys in the Belmont

NEW YORK (AP) - Rags to Riches can beat the boys, too.
The fabulous filly outdueled Curlin in a breathtaking stretch
run and won the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, becoming the first of
her sex to take the final leg of the Triple Crown in more than a
century.
No one was happier with the victory than trainer Todd Pletcher
and jockey John Velazquez, who both ended long droughts in Triple
Crown races: Pletcher was 0-for-28, Velazquez 0-for-20.
