The third and final leg of the triple crown of thoroughbred racing is this weekend.

The Belmont Stakes are set for Saturday.

And while there will be no Triple Crown winner this year, there’s always excitement surrounding the race.

“Live in the D“ hosts Jason Carr and Tati Amare chatted with Andrew Brown with Twinspires about how to have a hand in the race.

The Belmont Stakes mark the last of the Triple Crown races, and it’s the longest run, as well.

The one to beat this weekend is “Essential Quality.” This was the same favorite for the Kentucky Derby. There’s also a Japanese horse in the race that would become the first Japanese racehorse to win.

The 153rd Belmont Stakes will take place at 3 p.m. (June 5).
