The 2017 Belmont Stakes will be held on June 10. Here’s how you can watch the last leg of the Triple Crown races online via live streaming.
On June 10, the last leg of the 2017 Triple Crown season will be held. That’s when the Belmont Stakes are held at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. It’s often considered the toughest of the Triple Crown races, since it’s also the longest. Usually, the Belmont Stakes is when the Triple Crown hopefuls fall short because the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes are the same length. However, the Belmont is 1.5 miles, or 12 furlongs, in length.
Racers will be trying to top Secretariat’s long standing record time of 2:24, set back in 1973. That’s the same year the famous horse won the Triple Crown. This year, there will be no such winner, as Always Dreaming, who won at the Kentucky Derby, lost to Cloud Computing at Preakness. Neither of the two winners will be participating at the Belmont Stakes.
Still, this is a pretty competitive field with no dominating favorite. It should make for a fascinating and exciting race, which is all a horse racing fan can ask for. Here’s a list of the participants, as well as their posts.
