What to know about The Belmont Stakes, the third jewel of the Triple Crown.

Everything you need to consider for your bets: date and post time, horses, TV schedule, contenders and live stream.

Let’s talk about what is the Belmont Stakes: distance, prize pool, history and more!

O Belmont Stakes is recognized as the third jewel of the Triple Crown and the longest race, measuring 1 1/2 miles (12 furlongs), and horses that compete must run on the dirt track (also known as “Big Sandy”). It was originally run in 1867. It is regarded as one of America’s fairest racetracks due to its sweeping bends and extended homestretch.

Because the winning colt or filly gets draped with 1,700 white carnations, the race is commonly called as “The Test of Champions” or “The Run for the Carnations.” The Belmont Stakes takes place on the first or second Saturday in June, approximately five weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes.

In 2022, the Belmont Stakes will be worth $1.5 million, making it one of North America’s, if not the world’s, most profitable races.

The Belmont is known for Secretariat’s 31-length victory in 1973, which gave him the Triple Crown and set the current world record for 1 1/2 mile on a dirt track at 2:24.

Show: You’ll win if your selection finishes in the first three positions this time.

Exacta: Correctly predict the race’s winner and runner-up. This is a harder bet than the win bet, but it pays out more.
