All about Belmont

Belmont riders and horses
All About Belmont -
Race to the Triple Crown

The Belmont Stakes is run on the largest dirt track in North America, Belmont Park, measuring a massive 1 1/2 miles around.

The last and most demanding jewel in the Triple Crown, the Belmont race is also known as "The Test of the Champion" for the gruelling physical toll it takes on 3-year-old horses and the critical pacing and timing demanded of skilled jockeys.

Hey...this is the Big Apple - and In the final showdown only the smartest and strongest survive.

The lineup of major contenders at the Belmont stakes traditionally depend on the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, and how well horses perform in those two races. But at Belmont, anything can happen!
