The Paulick Report is excited to have photographer Eric Kalet back in New York this year to share his unique perspective on Belmont Stakes week.

Each day, we'll see through Eric's eyes the preparations, festivities, and important moments leading up to the 148th running of the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes.

The Belmont was captured by WinStar Farm and Bobby Flay's Creator, nosing out Destin on the wire. It was the first Belmont Stakes victory for trainer Steve Asmussen and for jockey Irad Ortiz. Rains began to fall over the New York oval just after the race, and a rainbow extended over the emotional winner's circle scenes.

Enjoy this inside look at the 2016 Belmont Stakes.
