It's been a weird and wacky year in the world of horse racing, with the disqualification of Maximum Security at the Kentucky Derby casting a shadow over the entire industry.

Horse racing will look to turn the page this weekend when the Belmont Stakes takes place at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

The Belmont Stakes is the final leg of the Triple Crown, and is also known as the "Run for the Carnations". The race, which is contested on a 1.5 mile long course (2.4 kilometres), is open to all 3 year-old Thoroughbreds.

The Belmont Stakes is one of the most watched sporting events in the United States, with over 20 million people tuning in for each race.

The track is a left-handed track that is made of dirt. The total purse for the race is usually around $1.5 million, with the winner receiving close to a million dollars.

The defending champion is Justify, who was ridden by Mike Smith and trained by Bob Baffert.


Tacitus is the favourite to win this year's Belmont Stakes, though there are a few horses that are considered to have good odds of winning.

Tacitus is the spawn of Tapit and Close Hatches, and has been on an absolute tear as of late, winning three of his last 4 races and finishing in third place in the other. Tacitus is trained by William Mott and owned by Juddmonte Farms, Inc.
