The final leg of horse racing's Triple Crown is upon us. Nine horses will take to the starting gate at 7:02 p.m. ET Saturday, June 10 at Belmont Park to complete the 2023 iteration of horse racing's biggest series of events.
A purse of $1.5 million is on the line, and the field is full of talented 3-year-olds, from Preakness Stakes winner National Treasure to 2022 champion juvenile colt Forte and Kentucky Derby third-place finisher Angel of Empire.
Forte, trained by Todd Pletcher, has won six of his seven career starts. The last time he raced was in April at the Curlin Florida Derby, which he won.
He was entered in the Kentucky Derby but was scratched due to what was reported as a bruised hoof . Forte is the morning-line favorite for the Belmont at 5-2 odds as of Friday.
Here's what you need to know to watch the Belmont Stakes in 2023.
