Belmont Stakes Race Information: The Belmont Stakes is the third race of the Triple Crown of Horse Racing and is considered to be the most intense and most difficult of the three races to win. Run at a length of 1.5 Miles, it is the longest of race of the Triple Crown.

Belmont Stakes History: The Belmont Stakes was first raced at Jerome Park from 1867 to 1889 and has had Aqueduct and Morris Park as temporary hosts venues. In 1905, Belmont Park was opened in Elmont, New York by August Belmont Sr. and aside from a stint of betting prohibition from 1910 to 1912 and then a during a renovation from 1963-1967, Belmont Park has remained as the host venue for the third jewed of the Triple Crown.

The Belmont is the oldest of the three Triple Crown events. The Belmont predates the Preakness by six years, the Kentucky Derby by eight. The first running of the Belmont Stakes was in 1867 at Jerome Park and believe it or not, it was run on a Thursday. At a mile and five furlongs, the original conditions for entry included an fee of $200 where half would lossed if a horse was to forfeit. The Belmont Stakes is not only the oldest Triple Crown race, but it is the fourth oldest horse race in North America. The Phoenix Stakes, now run in the fall at Keeneland as the Phoenix Breeders' Cup, was first run in 1831. The Queen's Plate in Canada made its debut in 1860, while the Travers in Saratoga opened in 1864. However, since there were gaps in sequence for the Travers, the Belmont is third only to the Phoenix and Queen's Plate in total runnings.
