BELMONT STAKES – 151st Running
Saturday, June 8 – Belmont Park – Elmont, New York
One Mile & One Half – Dirt – 3-year olds – Grade 1
$1.5 Million Guaranteed Purse
For over 150 years, the Belmont Stakes has proven to be the most challenging and often the most unpredictable race of the Triple Crown series. Victory in the Belmont Stakes requires a horse with strength and stamina, a trainer with the knowledge of what it takes to prepare a horse for the 1½-mile distance, and a jockey with experience and nerves of steel.
When the equine stars align, Triple Crown winners like Secretariat, Citation, Affirmed, and American Pharoah have baked themselves into superstardom. But even Belmont’s near-misses of Smarty Jones, Real Quiet, Silver Charm and California Chrome were the devastatingly thrilling events of their seasons.
Witness history in the making at this year’s Belmont Stakes! You can watch and wager the Belmont Stakes Simulcast live at Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino along with nine other stakes races on the June 8th card. Grandstand Admission is FREE and seating in the Turf Club is only $10.
