The 2023 edition of the legendary Belmont Stakes — the oldest and longest race in the Triple Crown series — took place on June 10. The 154th version of the New York-based event was as thrilling and relevant as years past and the latest version was no different.

Here, you can find everything you need to know about the 2023 Belmont Stakes, including watch times, betting odds, and the race winner.

When and where are the Belmont Stakes?

The 2023 race happened on Saturday, June 11 at its long-time home, the Belmont Race Track in Elmont, New York. However, that was not always the location for the fourth oldest horse race in North America.

Before being moved to the borough of Queens, the Belmont Stakes was run for many years at the Jerome Park Racetrack in the Bronx, starting in 1867.
