Why Kentucky Derby horses are worth much more off the track
Saturday May 20th, 2017

The Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the Triple Crown, follows the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes.

This year's Belmont Stakes will be held Saturday, June 10 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. 

The race was first run in 1867, although it was moved to its current Long Island location in 1905. 

NBC will broadcast the Belmont Stakes. It comes three weeks after the Preakness Stakes.
