Afleet Alex proved that he was with out doubt the best 3-year old colt in the country as he won the Belmont by 7 lengths with jockey Jeremy Rose aboard.
The mile and one half distance set up perfectly for Afleet Alex, who came on strong off the far turn. The final time was a moderate 2:28 4/5 on a fast track.
Afleet Alex won the Preakness Stakes but had trouble in the Kentucky Derby because of the large field and some early contact. There is no question that if the Derby was ran again this horse would have a great chance of winning.

Individual Horse Results
Afleet Alex went into the inside in the early stages and saved ground entering turn one. Horse was unhurried along the backstretch while racing slightly off the rail. He launched a rally leaving the far turn and swung wide for smooth sailing and at the quarter pole went to the front. Won by 7 lengths.
Andromea’s Hero was out wide in the first turn and did well in the back side. Then moved up between horses in the far turn and took 2 nd.
Nolan’s Cat trailed for a half but turned it on and closed the gap by the quarter poll to finish 3 rd.
Indy Storm raced in the middle of the pack for most of the race and closed the gap down the stretch.
A.P Arrow moved up fast in the early stages but tired down the stretch.
Chekhov started out just behind the leaders but dropped back leaving the far turn
Giacomo had trouble breathing at the gate. He was unhurried for half and advanced toward the end but tired down the stretch.
Southern Africa remained a factor for much of the race but tired towards the end.
