A few horses have come close to making history in front of the tens of thousands of Belmont Stakes ticketholders who fill up the infield, homestretch and grandstands every summer. Smarty Jones appeared to have the Triple Crown well within his reach as he strode down the long Belmont Park Raceway homestretch in 2004, but a horse by the name of Birdstone ridden by Edgar Prado ran him down and prevented his name from being etched into history. In 2009 it was Big Brown, a gigantic thoroughbred who seemed unbeatable until Summer Bird prevailed like a champion throughout a lightning quick Belmont Stakes race under perfect conditions.
One thing fans interested in attending this epic showcase of horseracing and professional sports grandeur should know is that the track in Belmont, New York is one of the longest in North America. It's full 1 ½ miles is equivalent to 12 furlongs, and it typically takes the winning horse two and a half minutes to make its way around the massive and well-manicured dirt track.
When the horses thunder toward the finish line, one of the most powerful, graceful and impressive moments in all of entertainment unfolds before the eyes of all in attendance.
