Belmont Stakes 2014: TV Schedule, Date, Purse, Other Info

, , , ,
Cred: Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

With California Chrome’s win at The Preakness Stakes, the 2014 Belmont Stakes will host a potential historical race on June 7. Not since Affirmed in 1978 have we seen a horse win racing’s elusive Triple Crown. Chrome will have a chance to do just that at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

If Chrome is able to race to the winner’s circle at the Belmont, he’ll become just the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown. If he fails to pace the pack, Chrome will be the 23rd horse to win the first two legs of the Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes) but fail to come out on top in the third.

The race, which has been termed “The Test of the Champion,” is the longest of the three legs of the Triple Crown. It is 1.5 miles long (12 furlongs), and features a dirt track with left-handed turns.

The Belmont’s purse pays out $1.5 million, with the winner taking home $800,000.

NBC will air the race live on TV, however the scheduled post time has not been released yet.

We will be updating with more Belmont Stakes information here as it is made available. Be sure to check in as we lead up to California Chrome’s race for history.
