more on that...

 

Belmont Stakes are the 3rd of the 3 races of the well known US Triple Crown...

and this year, for the 22nd time, we have a horse that won the first 2 "chapters" (Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes): his name is Justify

but the Belmont Stakes are longer and quite different from the other 2 races, so the Triple was completed only 12 times, the last one being the 2015 triumph by American Pharoah (and before him, the last TC hero was Affirmed in 1978)...

 

all you need to know on the Triple Crown races, it's on this website:

Still, all those American races don't even come close to races like the Epsom Derby and those kind of races that were already held well over 200 years ago :bowdown:

There's only 10 entries for the Belmont Stakes. It seems ridiculously low to me, I would expect around two dozens of horses.

Justified won at the Belmont Stakes with a time of 2'28.18, becoming the 13rd horse to claim the Triple Crown.
