Jerome Park Racetrack hosted the first Belmont Stakes in The Bronx. The racetrack was built by Leonard Jerome in 1866. August Belmont, Sr. financed the project, the same person whose name was adopted to title the race. Jerome Park hosted the race till 1980 and then it was moved to Morris Park Racecourse where it remained until 1905. Belmont Park was inaugurated the same year with a racetrack on four hundred and thirty acres, the race shifted there the same year. Belmont Park was renovated during the period 1963-1967. For that period the race was scheduled at the Aqueduct Racetrack. These races tend to attract a lot of media attention as well. Year 2004 recorded a TV audience of over twenty one million viewers which was the highest household viewership rate recorded since 1977.
As Belmont Stakes is the final race, the length of the track makes it tough, that is why it is called The Test of the Champion. Majority of the three year olds are not used to maintain the speed for the entire distance and lack the required experience. In a long race such as this one, where the horses are required to cover one lap around the Belmont main track, positioning and timing of the horse can be pivotal. Belmont Stakes established a world record in 1973 with Secretariat’s 31-length triumph for a mile and a half on dirt. By winning the race in Belmont, Secretariat became the ninth horse to win the Triple Crown.
Over the years, twenty-nine horses have qualified to participate in the Triple Crown and eleven of them succeeded in winning the championship. The horses who won the first two legs of the competition from 1997 to 2004 include Silver Charm, Charismatic, War Emblem, Funny Cide, Smarty Jones and Real Quiet.
