The last leg of the US Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, became the scene of a surprise win when Drosselmeyer unleashed his inner warrior and raced to a narrow victory.

141st Belmont Stakes 2009 Winner

Mine That Bird moved up to the front to take the lead, but couldn’t hold the lead as Summer Bird out ran him and won the race. Sire Birdstone should be very proud of his offspring.
