The "Run for the Carnations" or "The Test of Champions" is all that stands between I'll Have Another and a Triple Crown.  The three-year-old chestnut colt from Kentucky came-from-behind in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, and is now considered the overwhelming favorite to win the Belmont Stakes.  

I'll Have Another's greatest challenge at Belmont will be the long 1.5 mile run to the finish. 

Only 11 horses have had a chance to win all three races since Affirmed captured the Triple Crown 33 years ago. 

Anything can happen on race day.

Belmont Park, Elmont, New York

When: Saturday, June 9


Post Time: 6:40 p.m. ET

Weather: Dry, with pleasant temperatures according to  Chance of rain leading up to race day.
