Here are the horses competing in the 2024 Belmont Stakes

The third leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, will take place Saturday, June 8, with a shift in location.

This year’s race (and next year’s, too) will take place at Saratoga Race Course in upstate New York, while Belmont Park on Long Island undergoes renovation. That will make for a shorter track for the 2024 Belmont Stakes: 1 1/4 miles, rather than the traditional 1 1/2 miles.

The Triple Crown won’t be at stake, with Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan having finished second to Seize the Grey at the Preakness Stakes on May 18. Both horses will compete in the Belmont Stakes.
