This weekend, the third jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown will take place in Elmont.
Saturday is the 151st running of the Belmont Stakes.
The race is not quite like last year, when Justify won the Triple Crown. Kentucky Derby winner Country House did not run in last month's Preakness Stakes.
The winner of the Preakness - War of Will, will run in the race. The favorite to win Belmont is Tacitus.
Post time tomorrow evening is 6:37 p.m.
Up to 90,000 spectators could be on hand for the race.
