The Belmont Stakes is the third and final leg of the “Triple Crown.”

The race takes place at Belmont Park from Elmont, New York in the United States and features the top three-year-old horses in the world.

Normally, the race takes place exactly five weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes.

The 2020 installment was run at 1 1/8 miles instead of the 1 1/2-mile ''test of the champion'' that has been the race's trademark for almost a century, but the 2021 event went back to the normal distance and so is the 2022 Belmont Stakes

The Belmont Stakes is the third leg of the Triple Crown, preceded by the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes


Many say horse racing’s Triple Crown is the toughest feat in all of sports. When you think about it, winning three races at three different tracks at three different distances in five weeks seems to be truly impossible.


First stop, Kentucky. Save a few instances where a horse ships in from overseas, no three-year-old has carried 126 pounds or raced past 1 1/8 miles. Now they have to carry that impost and navigate the classic distance of 1 ¼ miles. Throw in the University of Louisville Marching Band playing “My Old Kentucky Home” with easily over 120,000 screaming, mostly drunk, fans singing along, and you have yourself the Kentucky Derby. Physical and mental toughness are an absolute must.


If you manage to win the Roses, it’s off to Baltimore where you get to cut back in distance to 1 3/16 miles and go from a Churchill Downs course that plays fairly even to a sometimes speed-biased Pimlico course that can be tricky at times, to say the least. There certainly isn’t as much fanfare, there are still plenty of drunks though, but with just two weeks and a 500-mile trip in between starts, there is still plenty to deal with.


Should you grab the first two jewels, the “Test of the Champion” awaits. You get three weeks between starts this time and less of a van ride but all 1 ½ miles of Big Sandy awaits. Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens once made me walk around the track at Belmont, stopped me at the quarter pole and said” imagine having done all of that (everything I’ve already mentioned) and still having to do this.” To me, it seemed like the wire was a world away.

It’s astonishing that 13 have already done it, in some shape or form.


After waiting 25 years for a Triple Crown winner, horse racing fans were spoiled in the 1970s by the time Affirmed became the eleventh horse to do it when he captured the Triple Crown with a heart-stopping victory over Alydar in the 1978 Belmont Stakes. After all, Secretariat did it spectacularly in 1973, the first since Citation back in 1948 and Seattle Slew completed the sweep in style, managing to stay undefeated through the 1977 “Test of the Champion.”

Little did they know, 37 years would come and go without another accomplishing the feat, until American Pharoah was finally the one in 2015 for Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert, who’ll try to do it again with the undefeated Justify on Saturday, June 9.

Just a few years later in 2018, Justify captured the Triple Crown. Baffert became the second trainer to win the Triple Crown twice, joining James ''Sunny Jim'' Fitzsimmons, who guided Gallant Fox in 1930 and Omaha in 1935.

  • 1919 - Sir Barton
  • 1930 - Gallant Fox
  • 1935 - Omaha
  • 1937 - War Admiral
  • 1941 - Whirlaway
  • 1943 - Count Fleet
  • 1946 - Assault
  • 1948 - Citation
  • 1973 - Secretariat
  • 1977 - Seattle Slew
  • 1978 - Affirmed
  • 2015 - American Pharoah
  • 2018 - Justify

For horse racing bettors wondering -- dating back to 1932, 23 horses have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness before coming to the Big Apple to get their proverbial clocks cleaned, 14 of them since Affirmed alone. One of them, I'll Have Another back in 2012, didn't even make it to the starting gate as he was scratched the day before the event with a nagging tendon injury.
