The Belmont Stakes is over, and with it, the 2011 Triple Crown season.
But the horse racing season most certainly isn't over, and this race only opens up many more questions for the last six months of 2011.
What can we take from the Belmont?
Well, a lot.
The Horse of the Year award is still up for grabs, and a lot of these horses still have a lot to prove.
Was it a fluke for Ruler on Ice? Will Shackleford come back strongly? Was Animal Kingdom just unlucky?
The Triple Crown season may be finished, but horse racing is as exciting as ever.
