The New York Racing Association announced Tuesday that the 152nd renewal of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes — to be contested at nine furlongs in 2020 — will take place on Saturday, June 20, at Belmont Park as the opening leg of the Triple Crown for the first time in history.

To align with required health and safety measures implemented in New York to mitigate risk and combat the spread of COVID-19, the Belmont Stakes will be held without spectators in attendance.

“While this will certainly be a unique running of this historic race, we are grateful to be able to hold the Belmont Stakes in 2020,” said NYRA President & CEO Dave O’Rourke. “Thanks to our partners at NBC Sports, fans across the country can look forward to a day of exceptional thoroughbred racing at a time when entertainment and sports are so important to providing a sense of normalcy.”
