Belmont Stakes Ticket Information
Since 1866, the Belmont Stakes has provided incomparable excitement each year when it takes over the Elmont, N.Y., racetrack. Named after August Belmont, Sr., the man responsible for the initial financing of the race, by 1931, the Belmont Stakes was designated as the crucial third and final leg of the U.S. Triple Crown. Of the three, which also includes the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, the Belmont Stakes is the longest in distance, checking in at 1.5 miles. Among some of the most notable Triple Crown winners in horse racing history are Gallant Fox (1930), which was the first to accomplish the feat via the Belmont Stakes, Secretariat (1973), and Affirmed (1978), notably the last horse to secure the Triple Crown.

American Pharoah to Attempt Triple Crown at 2015 Belmont Stakes
For the second straight year, the Belmont Stakes has the potential to offer up an historic moment for sports fans. With wins at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, American Pharoah will have a shot at glory when it competes for the Triple Crown at the 2015 Belmont Stakes on June 6 at Belmont Park Racetrack. While the notoriously difficult feat has not been achieved since 1978, the chance to end the drought has now presented itself three times in the past four years, as I’ll Have Another (2012) and California Chrome (2014) both preceded American Pharoah’s attempt. In I’ll Have Another’s case, the horse ultimately was unable to run in the Belmont Stakes due to tendonitis, while California Chrome was noted for its use of nasal strips.
Despite normal fatigue, American Pharoah has been deemed healthy following the Preakness win, and is expected to be fully ready to compete come June. Only 11 horses have won the US Triple Crown, while 14 have had the opportunity since Affirmed’s victory back in 1978.
