Welcome to the 2012 Belmont Stakes. This year we have a chance to see the first Triple Crown winner since 1978 when Affirmed won the Triple Crown.
The historic journey for Reddam Racing’s I’ll Have Another started beneath the Twin Spires with his dramatic victory in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 5. On Saturday trainer Doug O’Neill’s colt will attempt to become just the 12th Triple Crown winner in American racing history – and the first in 34 years – when he faces 11 rivals in last and longest jewel of the Triple Crown series.
The Belmont Stakes 2012 will take place on Saturday, June 9th. For those looking to attend the race live, gates open at 8:30 AM. In addition to the highly sought after reserved seating Belmont Park admits thousands of fans via general admission on a first come, first served basis. You can also find a full 2012 Belmont Stakes Schedule on this site.
