The third jewel in the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes runs this Saturday and Monmouth Park is the place to be to catch all the simulcast action from Big Sandy.

Saturday’s gates will open early at 11 a.m. with Belmont Park’s first race going at 11:35 a.m.

 Belmont’s entire card, which will be beamed-in to Monmouth, has six Grade 1 races, a pair of Grade 2’s and a Grade 3 event.

The Belmont Stakes has an estimated post of 6:37 p.m.  Advance wagering on that race will be offered on Friday at Monmouth beginning at noon.

Also on Friday, Monmouth Park will change its first post to 1 p.m. for one day only. Gates will still open at 11:30 a.m.
