In addition, this year’s Belmont Stakes will be run at 1 1/8 miles and not at its usual distance of 1 ½ miles. The Triple Crown will continue following the Belmont Stakes with the Kentucky Derby, September 5 and the Preakness Stakes October 3. It’s a juxtaposed Triple Crown due to the impact of the Coronavirus.
