By Scooby Axson, USA TODAY,2023-06-09
The 155th edition of the Belmont Stakes and the final leg of the Triple Crown will take place Saturday at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
Saturday's race marks the 50th anniversary of Secretariat's dominant 1973 Triple Crown win , when the legendary horse won the Belmont by a record-setting 31 lengths.
Nine horses will compete at this year's Belmont, also known as the "Test of the Champion" because of the race length. Kentucky Derby winner Mage will not be in the field, but Preakness Stakes winner National Treasure will race at Belmont Park.
Earlier in the week, there was concern about the smoke coming from the wildfires in Canada, which forced the cancellation of several sporting events in the New York area. Thursday's practice runs at Belmont Park were halted, but racing returned Friday as air quality improved.
