2014 Belmont Stakes
Belmont Park Racetrack - Elmont, NY
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.

It’s certainly a marvelous achievement for a horse to reign supreme at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, but one must cap it off with a victory at the Belmont Stakes to claim the coveted, Triple Crown. Standing as the final race of the celebrated trio, the 2013 Belmont Stakes is set to take place on Saturday, June 8 at Belmont Park Racetrack in Elmont, N.Y. This year marks the 145th running of the race, which pits the world’s finest three-year-old Thoroughbreds against one another for 1.5 thrilling miles. Over the years, the Belmont Stakes has provided some of the sport’s most memorable moments, including Secretariat's amazing 31-length victory in 1973 and Affirmed's completion of the Triple Crown in 1978, which was the last time the feat was accomplished.
In last year's race, Union Rags, jockeyed by John Velazquez and owned by Phyllis M. Wyeth, won with a blistering time of 2:30.42. Union Rags held off charges by Paynter and Atigun for the win, but didn’t have to face off against Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, I’ll Have Another, as it dropped out due to a leg injury.
