Justify Triple Crown Gear

2016 Belmont Stakes Contenders

Date: 06/06/2016

This year, the Belmont Stakes will not have a horse going for the Triple Crown, with Nyquist winning the Kentucky Derby and Exaggerator winning the Preakness Stakes. Unfortunately, Nyquist is out due to illness, so it will be Exaggerator against several horses who ran in either the Preakness or the Kentucky Derby plus a few newcomers.

Here is the list of potential starters for the 148th running of the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes (G1) on Saturday June 11. Entries will be taken and post positions drawn on Wednesday June 8.

Live television coverage will be provided from 2:30-4:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network and 4:30-7:30 p.m. on NBC, with post time for the Belmont Stakes scheduled for 6:52 p.m. All times are Eastern time zone.
