Belmont Stakes Betting Information
Belmont Stakes 145 Where is the Belmont Stakes? Belmont Park When is the Belmont Stakes? June 8, 2013
The 145th running of the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes will be held at Belmont Park on Saturday, June 8. ABC-TV and ESPN will provide live coverage of the day’s events.
The Belmont Stakes prize purse is $1 million. The third jewel of the Triple Crown is the Belmont Stakes, held five weeks after the Kentucky Derby at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
The first Belmont in the United States was not the famous stakes race or even the man for whom it is named. Rather, the first Belmont was a race horse that arrived in California in 1853 from his breeding grounds of Franklin, Ohio. The Belmont Stakes, however, are named after August Belmont, a financier who made quite a name and fortune for himself in New York politics and society. Obviously, Mr. Belmont was also quite involved in horse racing, and his imprint is even intertwined within the history of the Kentucky Derby.
