2012 Belmont Stakes Horse RacingBelmont Stakes horse racing, limited to 3-year old's, is the third and last segment in the race for the Triple Crown. The annual Belmont Stakes horse racing event, the longest race of the three, is run on an oval dirt track for a distance of a mile and a half. A prize of $1,000,000 is awarded to the winner of the Belmont Stakes horse racing championship. The top contenders in this race are often the winners from two previous races, the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, with a few exceptions.
There are several factors to consider in Belmont Stakes horse racing before placing a bet. The breeding line, or pedigree, is perhaps one of the most important considerations. A total of eleven winners have sired at least one other previous winner. Many of the Belmont Stakes winners have been bred in Kentucky, but again there have been exceptions. Experience and size of the horses is relatively unimportant, as well, and will not necessarily predict a winner in the Belmont Stakes. A combination of stamina and speed is needed for this demanding race. Furthermore, recent history has shown that four out of the six winners in the field of contenders for the Belmont Stakes were "longshots."
