The 2014 Belmont Stakes Post Positions could have a very big impact on today's race, which has some of the best horses in the world scheduled to run. The 2014 Belmont Stakes Odds for the race currently have California Chrome, who is running for the Triple Crown, listed as the favorite to win the event, which will take place this Saturday at at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
The race is open to 3-year-old thoroughbreds that weight 126 pounds and will run the 1.5-mile course. The Belmont Stakes is the third and final leg of the US Triple Crown, following exactly five weeks after the Kentucky Derby, and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes. It is nicknamed "The Test of the Champion" and in this race we have California Chrome running for the first Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978.
And although California Chrome is going to be drawing the most attention in this race because of the Triple Crown possibility, don't overlook the rest of the field. Both Commanding Curve, which finished second in the Kentucky Derby and Ride On Curlin, which finished second in the Preakness, are being projected to run in this field on Saturday.
