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.

California Chrome to Compete for Triple Crown at 2014 Belmont Stakes
Ahead of the start of the key races for 2014, Wicked Strong had emerged as a legitimate contender early on, along with other forecasted favorites like California Chrome, Wildcat Red, Vicar’s In Trouble, and Bayern. Of course, it was in fact California Chrome that would emerge victorious at both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, and on May 19, it was officially confirmed that the horse (nasal strips and all) will have a chance to compete for the Triple Crown at the 2014 Belmont Stakes on June 7. The race will take place at its usual home of Belmont Park Racetrack in Elmont, N.Y., where California Chrome will be attempting to end horse racing’s Triple Crown drought that has been in place since 1978.
The closest a horse has come to achieving the coveted feat in recent years was in 2012, when I’ll Have Another took the top spot at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, but untimely tendonitis ultimately sidelined the horse shortly before the Belmont Stakes, preventing it from attempting to win the Triple Crown. Throughout history, only 11 horses have won the US Triple Crown with Affirmed being the most recent a mere 36 years ago. Overall, California Chrome has won six straight races heading into the highly anticipated Belmont Stakes.
