What is the Belmont Stakes?
The 148th running of the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes comes our way on Saturday, June 11, 2016. The Belmont Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race for three-year-olds held on the third Saturday in May each year at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. It is a Grade I race run over a distance of 9.5 furlongs on dirt. Colts and geldings carry 126 pounds (57 kg); fillies 121 lb (55 kg). It is the second leg of the US Triple Crown, with the Kentucky Derby preceding it and the Belmont Stakes following it. The horse must win all three races to win the Triple Crown.
The Belmont Stakes has been termed "The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans" because a blanket of Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta, the state flower of Maryland) is traditionally placed around the winner's neck. With the exception of the Kentucky Derby, the attendance at the Belmont Stakes usually surpasses the attendance of all other North American stakes races including the Belmont Stakes, the Breeders' Cup and the Kentucky Oaks.
