We've already discussed why you should attend the Belmont Stakes, but we still have yet to drive home what really makes this race different from its Triple Crown™ counterparts. While it's often grouped together with the other treble sprints, the Belmont Stakes has unique merit and value that helps differentiate it from the rest. While it is seen as one of three, it carries enough weight to stand truly on its own.
Winning the Belmont Stakes ensures a horse's place in the history books, but completing the "Test of Champions" faster than any other competitors puts them into another stratosphere.
As I've said before when we looked at the top Belmont Stakes winners of all-time, this race is more than just a 1 1/2-mile sprint. The Belmont Stakes carries the weight of the entire Triple Crown™ on its back, even in non-treble years.
Happy Triple Crown™ Tuesday!
Winning the Triple Crown™ is a prestigious honor. Comprised of three races; Preakness Stakes, the Kentucky Derby® and Belmont Stakes, becoming a Triple Crown™ winner is the greatest honor that any horse racing team strives to achieve throughout their racing career. Only 13 horses in history have won the Triple Crown™, proving just how hard it is to complete the trifecta.
Elegance, prestige and class. Only the best outfits arrive through the gates of Belmont Park to honor the historic tradition of the final leg of the Triple Crown™, the Belmont Stakes. Held each year in June, Elmont, New York provides the perfect backdrop and weather for horse-racing fans.
