Belmont Stakes’ Ratings Up 13% From 2011

Despite the last-minute pullout of Triple Crown-hopeful I’ll Have Another, NBC’ broadcast of the Belmont Stakes, which was won by Union Rags, drew a 5.4 overnight rating/13 share for the race portion, up 13% from last year’s race on NBC and up 74% from the 2010 race on ABC. Yesterday’s Belmont had the highest overnight for the race in a non-Triple Crown year since 2005 on NBC (6.0/13).
