Belmont Stakes today!!

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?
