Dornoch took home the 156th running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.

This year’s race was moved to Saratoga Race Course in upstate New York, as Belmont Park is undergoing a massive renovation project.

Horses and jockeys had to adjust to the new course – with the race normally being a mile-and-a-half long, Saratoga’s racing oval is just 1 1/8 miles in length, making the usual race distance improbable to run.

Thus, this year’s race was run at 1 ¼ miles, the same distance as the Kentucky Derby.

Two-time Super Bowl winning head coach Bill Parcells was in attendance, which isn’t surprising for the New York Giants coaching legend, who not only frequents the course but has made Saratoga Springs his home.
