In the last 114 years less than two dozen horses have been in a position to earn horse racing's biggest honor, and it hasn't happened in more than three decades.
Saddle Brook Jockey Club is happy to host the event for local enthusiasts. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to be enjoyed in a festival type of atmosphere at SBJC. The race itself will be a test of equine athleticism. Although California Chrome will be heavily favored to win, he will have lots of competition -- Ride on Curlin, Tonalist, General A-Rod and more. SBJC will be giving out a welcome package including door prizes, handicapping information and other goodies.
The Belmont Stakes airs tomorrow, Saturday June 7th, 4 p.m. Eastern Time on NBC Sports.
