Belmont Stakes History 

Held annually on the first or second Saturday in June, the Belmont Stakes is the final leg of the American Triple Crown races. The date of the race always falls five weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes.

Also known as The Test of the Champion or The Run for the Carnations, the race covers one lap of the Belmont Park track, which features long, wide sweeping turns and a long home straight, which means horses who have early speed.

The history of this race speaks for itself, and the first race was held in 1867 at Jerome Park Racetrack In New York. However, it moved to its now spiritual home when Belmont Park opened in 1905 and has remained at the course since.

It's due to this added distance of the race that many horses fail to actually win the Triple Crown as three-year-olds are unable to cope with the extra distance.
