The Belmont Stakes is the third leg of the Triple Crown and is considered the toughest and most demanding when compared to the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Only the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Kentucky Oaks has higher attendance in North America for a stakes race. Named after August Belmont, the race was first run at Jerome Park in 1867. Horse racing legend Secretariat’s 31-length victory in the 1973 Belmont Stakes made him the 9th horse to capture the Triple Crown after establishing a the world record for a mile and a half on dirt 31-length victory at 2:24. Historically, twenty-nine horses have had a chance to win the Triple Crown going into the Belmont Stakes, but only eleven were able to meet the challenge.
