The Belmont Stakes
On Saturday, June 6th, Belmont Park will once again take center stage to host the final test in horse racing’s famed Triple Crown—the 147th running of the Belmont Stakes. Belmont is the consummate Triple Crown closer, as the race has long since been regarded as the test of a true champion. Many horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown—The Preakness and The Kentucky Derby—but only 11 have gone the distance in all three. Attending the Belmont Stakes is a unique and rousing experience; everything from the history and lore of the track itself to its facilities and the energetic atmosphere it exudes add to the allure of the legendary race.
Belmont Park had its first race back in 1905 and has been the final leg of the Triple Crown since 1931. Since the first hoof hit the dirt at Belmont, the park has cultivated a reputation as one of the most respected racetracks on the planet. Known for it’s difficulty, at 1.5 miles in length, the Belmont Stakes is the longest of the three Triple Crown races by a solid margin, and its distance makes the race an extremely tactical one. Many horses tend to burn out in the last quarter mile or so making the final length of the race one of the most exhilarating moments in sports.
A visit to Belmont Park on any regular day can be an exciting experience, but to go on the day of the Belmont Stakes is entirely different—its akin to the disparity between attending a regular season Yankee game vs. game 7 of The World Series. The Belmont Stakes is a decidedly singular event—there’s really nothing else like it—and it should be treated as such.
