The third and final leg of the Triple Crown will be decided in the 2023 Belmont Stakes on June 10. Known as the “test of the champion,” the Belmont Stakes is the longest race in the horse racing Triple Crown at 1.5 miles. The race marks the 50th anniversary of Secretariat’s dominant Belmont win to secure the historic Triple Crown.
Unfortunately, there will be no Triple Crown winner in 2023 after Mage won the Kentucky Derby and National Treasure won the Preakness Stakes. However, National Treasure is running in the Belmont and has a chance to win two jewels in the Triple Crown. One of the biggest storylines is the return of Forte, who was scratched on the morning of the Kentucky Derby despite being the morning line favorite. Forte is currently the favorite to win the Belmont Stakes but will face steep competition from Tapit Trice, National Treasure, and Angel of Empire.
