A crowd of 47,562 people attended the Belmont Stakes on Saturday and bet nearly $11 million. An additional $80 million was bet off-track on the race. Attendance was well down from last year, when 85,811 packed Belmont Park.

Of course, last year there was also a potential Triple Crown winner until the day before the race. I’ll Have Another, who won last year’s Kentucky Derby and Preakness, was retired on the Friday before the 2011 Belmont Stakes after developing tendinitis.

Almost $100 million was bet on last year’s Belmont Stakes.
