Background The Belmont Stakes is the oldest of the Triple Crown races. This third and final leg is contested three weeks after the Preakness and five weeks after the Kentucky Derby. If the same horse has won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness the Belmont Stakes becomes the biggest race of the year and Belmont Park becomes a madhouse on race day.  Twenty three (23) times a horse has arrived with a chance at the Triple Crown but only eleven (11) times has a horse been able to wrap it all up in New York.
