Upsets in the Belmont Derby

Turf races in the US can be unpredictable and this was certainly the case in Belmont with the Derby.

The winner was Henley's Joy 21/1 bringing joy to Mike Maker and José Lezcano.  Social Paranoia 16/1 was second and Rockemperor third on 11/1.  Favourite Digital Age was fourth and Seismic Wave fifth.  Demarcheller was pulled up and Master Fencer was not a factor.

The Oaks saw Concrete Rose defeat Irish raider Just Wonderful with Camier Parc third.

The dirt race Suburban Gr 2 saw Preservationist steal the race finishing 4 ½ lengths ahead of favourite Catholic Boy with Pavel ¾ length back in third.
