The upcoming Belmont Stakes race that takes place this coming Saturday has a lot of excitement heading into it because of the chance of a Triple Crown win for California Chrome. The American Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing has not been won since 1978 by Affirmed, so there is a lot of excitement that this could be the year. California Chrome is a big favourite heading into the race with the oddsmakers giving him about a 50/50 shot at winning the Belmont Stakes and becoming the most recent Triple Crown winner.
Since 1978 12 horses have entered the Belmont Stakes with a chance at winning the Triple Crown, but each failed to do so. It’s not wonder that they call this longer race the test of the champion.
