My two cents, we might have seen a great stretch duel similar to the last time a filly won the Belmont with a better trip. Mo should get a new top since she ran close to her number, he was wide and conceded 1 1/2 points in weight. I will leave that to the team here. His trip fit the typical Belmont winner's profile.

Straight from the horse's mouth, no strike that the jock's.

Jose Ortiz, jockey aboard runner-up Nest: “She stumbled out of the gate. I think that was the worst break for me today. When she got up, she got a nice position on the rail. By the three-eighths pole, she was traveling very nicely. I was expecting We the People to run a little bit further and not get tired until the three-sixteenths and we could split horses then, but We the People was done by the three-eighths.
“When I took a peek to go out, Mo Donegal was already there full of horse. I didn't want to make a premature move and when I called her to run, I wanted it to be my only move. I had to wait to make my move. I don't know if it would have made a difference. I know Mo Donegal was traveling very nicely at the quarter pole and traveled very nicely to the wire, so I would call myself second-best. It was a huge effort by my filly.
“It is what it is. It's horse racing. She finished very well. I was waiting for my time to go at the five-sixteenths but Irad was outside of me he had a lot of horse, so I had to wait for him to make his move and he beat me to the punch. After that his horse stayed. My filly made a good run. I'm very proud of her.”
On brother Irad Ortiz, Jr. winning the race: “It's great, we ran good. My filly ran a great race and I'm very happy for my brother. Everybody showed up so we're happy.”
