2022 Belmont Stakes Info

Date: Saturday, June 11


TV: Coverage will air from 5-7 p.m. ET on NBC, with post time set to take place during that window.

Post Positions: The draw for post positions is set to take place Tuesday at 11 a.m. ET.

We’ll never know if Rich Strike could have won the Triple Crown. That’s because the Kentucky Derby-winning colt didn’t participate in the Preakness Stakes last month, ensuring that Justify (2018) would remain the most recent horse to win all three of the Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes.


However, Rich Strike could go 2-for-2 at Triple Crown events he has competed in. He’ll be back in action on Saturday when this year’s Belmont takes place in Elmont, New York.


When Rich Strike won the Kentucky Derby, he was an 80-1 longshot that stormed through the field late and overtook several top betting favorites to capture the victory. At the Belmont, he’ll have shorter odds now that he’s proved himself to be a strong competitor.


Horse racing fans are going to have a great time watching the race and can find all relevant information on how to do so below.
