The Belmont Stakes

The Belmont Stakes is an American Grade I stakes race; it makes up the third leg of the Triple Crown. The 1.5-mile course is run by three-year-old thoroughbred horses. Established in 1867, the event takes place at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

The race has been nicknamed the “Run for the Carnations” since a blanket of white carnations is hanged around the winner’s neck. It’s also sometimes referred to as the “Test of the Champion,” as it’s the final race of the Triple Crown and it’s an especially long race. Most three-year-old horses are unaccustomed to the length; the lack of experience and endurance plays a factor in the strategy.

Secretariat owns the speed record at 2:24:00, set in 1973. Not only is the time a world record, but Secretariat won by the largest margin in the history of American Grade 1 stakes races, a whopping 31 lengths. The Belmont also featured the first female jockey to win a Triple Crown race when Julie Krone rode Colonial Affair to victory in 1993.
