2010 Belmont Stakes Preview and Predictions by Sportsbook: Most of the horse racing fans are eagerly waiting for 2010 Belmont Stakes event. The 2010 Belmont Stakes date is already fixed. The 2010 Belmont Stakes will be on June 5th at Belmont Park. This will be the 142nd running of the Belmont Stakes, and will be shown live on ABC and ESPN.

Because of its distance and status as the race that can make or break a Triple Crown champion, the Belmont Stakes has been the venue for some of the most famous moments in American racing.

The Belmont Stakes, the final and most demanding leg of the Triple Crown, is named after August Belmont who had been a leading banker and racing man of the 19th century. He was also the first President of the Jockey Club in 1867.

The first Belmont in the United States was not the famous stakes race or even the man for whom it is named. Rather, the first Belmont was a race horse that arrived in California in 1853 from his breeding grounds of Franklin, Ohio. The Belmont Stakes, however, are named after August Belmont, a financier who made quite a name and fortune for himself in New York politics and society.
