The 2010 Belmont Stakes was the 142nd running of the Belmont Stakes. The race took place on June 5, 2010, and was televised in the United States on the ABC television network. The race was won by Drosselmeyer, who was ridden by jockey Mike Smith and trained by Bill Mott. As the final jewel in the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, the race was run without the elusive championship at stake due to 2010 Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver's loss in the Preakness Stakes. Both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners did not run in the race. Uptowncharlybrown finished fifth, but was disqualified and placed last due to losing the eight pound handicapping weight on the backstretch.[1]

Drosselmeyer (#7) leads into the stretch, followed by First Dude, Game On Dude (#8) and Fly Down (#5).
