NBC will televise the Belmont Stakes, starting coverage at 2:45 p.m. Saturday.
Post time; 5:42 ET /2:42 PT.
It’s been a strange year for everyone – including the horses, Since the triple crown was canceled then rescheduled the Belmont will be run today with no crowd. The race has been shortened as the mile and half was thought too long for these young horses that haven’t been running. Now 9 furlongs not 12. Furlong = 1/8 mile.
Belmont is usually the last of the three triple crown races but, with the delays and the Derby and Preakness have dates later in the season, this is the best fit for the track. Saratoga is opening later too so, for NY, this made the best sense.
The Kentucky Derby is Sept. 5 and the Preakness Stakes was rescheduled for Oct. 3,
Who’s it gonna be?

Will it be War of Will doing a repeat of the Preakness??
Or Tacitus, Spinoff, Master Fencer … who’s your pick?
Need a little luck? Pick up Bucephalus from the gift shop. Last day for the Triple Crown sale!

Post time 6:37pm on NBC.
Watch Bodexpress run his own race in the Preakness again. Now that’s a classic!!
War of Will
Lucky thirteen. That’s the head count at the post – unless there is a scratch.
There will be no chance of a triple crown this year as Country House bowed out and the contested first finisher, Maximum Security, withdrew as well. Often trainers don’t want to push their horses if they don’t like the odds – too many other races for the risk.
So with the field wide open it could be anyone’s race. Who is it going to be?
The favorite Baffert’s “Improbable”?
War of Will?

If you need a little luck pick up some from the gift shop where a hardback book of “the Black Stallion” is on sale at 50% off!! and that includes the combo with a Bucephalus figurine!
