When is the 2020 Belmont Stakes? The 152st Belmont Stakes is on Saturday, June 20. Post time will be at approximately 5:42 p.m. ET.

What is unique about the Belmont Stakes? The Belmont is the final test for horses seeking a Triple Crown title. Horses have an additional week of rest between races as opposed to the Preakness, but the Belmont is also the longest race of the three. [Not this year.  It’s only 9 furlongs.  Normally it is 12 furlongs or 1 1/2 miles].

Belmont Park is only a few miles away from New York City, and city dwellers can just hop on the Long Island Rail Road for a day at the races.
