Time: Coverage begins at 3 p.m. ET, post time at approximately 5:42 p.m. ET

TV Channel: NBC

The Belmont Stakes, usually the last leg of the Triple Crown, was originally scheduled for June 6 but was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. The distance was shortened from 1 1/2-miles (12 furlongs) to 1 1/8-miles (nine furlongs) to account for the scheduling changes.

Tiz the Law is the betting favorite at 6-5 odds, followed by Sole Volante (9-2) and Dr Post (5-1). If Tiz the Law crosses the line first, he would be the first New York-bred horse to win the race since 1882.

Last year's winning jockey, Joel Rosario, will be riding Max Player (15-1 odds) this year.
