Belmont Stakes 2012 Live Blog: Reaction to the Race, Results and Analysis

I'll Have Another won't be claiming another victory—or even another spot in a race. With the hot horse pulled out of the Belmont Stakes due to injury on Friday, there will be no Triple Crown winner for at least another year.

That doesn't mean there is nothing to tune in for at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, though.

Know as the "Test of the Champion," the Belmont has traditions all its own. There is the legendary 300-year-old white pine, the official drink known as the Belmont Breeze as well as its grueling mile-and-a-half-long track.

The winner is draped in a blanket of carnations, and there are still quite a few worthy contenders. While many were looking forward to I'll Have Another's run to history, stay tuned to see a new hero rise this afternoon.
