It was only the 4th nose finish in Belmont Stakes history.  Destin came in second.

Exaggerator, the Preakness Stakes winner and Kentucky Derby 2nd place finisher, failed to finish strong.  Crazy Lani finished 3rd.

Creator was a big win for the bookmakers with only 4 percent of the public backing him at 14-1.
