The 2024 Belmont Stakes will be run at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday, June 8, and the distance has been shortened to a mile and a quarter this year. Belmont Park is the home of the final leg of the Triple Crown and it is traditionally run at a mile and a half. Due to ongoing construction at that venue, the Belmont Stakes Festival will be run at Saratoga in 2024 and 2025. It is expected to return to Belmont Park in 2026.

Eleven horses are possible for the Belmont Stakes as of May 22. See the hopefuls below and make sure to check out the Belmont Stakes preview video at the bottom.
