Belmont is the third and final leg of the prestigious Triple Crown Race for top 3-year-old thoroughbreds in America. Horse bettors and Triple Crown horse racing fans have yet to come across a race that can mean so much in terms of money and prestige. Not even the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness can bring about quite as much excitement at the Belmont. This is a race where legends are born and history is made.

The Belmont Stakes was first flagged off on June 19, 1867, at the Jerome Park race course, a peculiarly fashioned English-style track. A colt called "Ruthless" emerged as Belmont's first winner, garnering a prize winning amount of $1,850. The race has become a tradition of competition ever since. There were no races held in the years of 1911 and 1912. However, the Belmont Stakes was re-established and it remains even now as the most important competition for stamina, grit and zeal.

Belmont Park is situated in Elmont, New York. It is a 430 acre race track. The Belmont race track covers a distance of 1.5 miles, which is shorter than the 1 and 5/8 miles that existed during the earlier years. In the year 1926, Belmont was run at a distance of 1 and 1/2 miles, and the distance has been the same ever since. Trust your gambling instincts, do some online research and place your best Belmont Stakes picks forward!
