Well, wouldn’t you know it.

On an off track, 24-1 shot Ruler on Ice ran away with the Belmont Stakes.

Of course, the money was all on Animal Kingdom and Shakelford.

Derby winner Animal Kingdom slipped out of the gate, nearly dismounting his jockey, yet still attempted to mount a late-charge as Ruler on Ice ran to the front of the field.

It wasn’t a good day for the favorites, with Nehro finishing fourth, Shackleford fifth and Animal Kingdom sixth.

Here is how they finished:

1. Ruler On Ice

2. Stay Thirsty
3. Brilliant Speed
4. Nehro
5. Shackleford
6. Animal Kingdom
7. Mucho Macho Man
8. Santiva
9. Monzon
10. Master of Hounds
11. Prime Cut
12. Isn’t He Perfect
