How to Watch the 2022 Belmont Stakes

The last leg of the triple crown is scheduled to go off on Saturday, as the 154th Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park shouldn’t lack its usual drama. While Preakness winner Early Voting won’t be in this weekend’s field, The Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike will be, having rested since his historic win in early May as an 80-1 longshot.

Coming in at 1.5 miles (12 furlongs), the Belmont Stakes is the longest of the three Triple Crown races and something to consider when choosing your horse. It’s also worth noting that the Belmont is run on a dirt track, so you’ll want to keep an eye on weather reports both during and in the build-up to the race. 

Scheduled to go off on Saturday at approximately 6:45 PM EST, let’s take a closer look at how you can tune in to all the coverage.
