ELMONT, N.Y. — A final date for the Belmont Stakes has been officially set: June 20. The three Triple Crown races will be run out of order as all three of them have been postponed to later dates. The Kentucky Derby will run on September 5 and the Preakness will be the final race held on October 3.
However, the changing dates are not the only factor that has changed about the race. Since 1926 the Belmont has been a 1.5-mile run but this year the run will be at 1-1/8 mile as an intro for the horses.
