Now that the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes are done, there's just one leg of the 2023 Triple Crown left: the 155th Belmont Stakes. Nine horses will run for the honor of a blanket of carnations — and the top prize of $800,000 — this weekend in the longest race of the Triple Crown series at a distance of 1.5 miles. The 155th Belmont Stakes marks the 50th anniversary of Secretariat's monumental Triple Crown win. Unfortunately, there's no chance for a Triple Crown win this year, since the Kentucky Derby winner, Mage, did not manage to eke out a win at the Preakness Stakes, and will not be running in the Belmont Stakes. But that won't stop horse racing fans from following all the action on the track this weekend, where most eyes will be on scratched Kentucky Derby frontrunner Forte and 2023 Preakness winner National Treasure. Here's what you need to know about how to watch the 2023 Belmont Stakes live, including the schedule, channels, streaming info and last-minute Belmont Stakes ticket prices.
