2009 Belmont Stakes

2009 Belmont Stakes141st Belmont Stakes

Date: Saturday June 6th, 2009
Location: Belmont Park, Elmont, NY
Post Time: 6:30PM (EST)
TV Network: ABC, 5:00PM (EST)

This year, the Belmont Stakes is in its 141st running and will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2009 at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y. Aptly named the "Test of the Champion," the Belmont Stakes is the final and most demanding leg of the Triple Crown and is held on the first Saturday that occurs on or after June 5. It is also the longest race in the series, at 1 1/2 miles. Though many in the current crop of 3-year-olds boast stamina in their pedigree, only a select few will be up to the challenge of such a lengthy race. But should a horse take the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, all eyes will be on the Belmont Stakes in anticipation of the first Triple Crown champion in 31 years.
