More Belmont Stakes News

The Belmont Stakes was first held at Jerome Park and then Morris Park before landing at Belmont Park in 1905. Ranging from 1 1/8 miles to 1 5/8 miles, the current run distance of 1 1/2 miles – or one lap around the oval – was settled in 1926. By and large, modelled on the Derby Stakes at Epsom Downs in England, the Belmont Stakes was restricted to colts and fillies only for a period.

The Belmont Stakes has produced some of the most epic performances in the sport’s history, especially with Triple Crown winners. Another record that still stands is when Count Fleet walloped two rivals by 25 lengths in 1943.

In 1989, Easy Goer won the Belmont Stakes in a winning time of 2:26, which was the second-fastest 12-furlong clocking in race history. In 1992, A.P. Indy, a son of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew and a grandson of Secretariat, won the Belmont Stakes in 2:26.13. In 1988, Secretariat’s best son, Risen Star, won in 2:26.40.

The main course at Belmont Park is 1 1/2 miles long, with the last turn on the track being 1,097 feet.
