Get Ready for a Thrilling Race: Preview of the 2021 Belmont Stakes Field

In the world of horse racing, few events evoke as much excitement as the Belmont Stakes, the third jewel of the coveted Triple Crown. While we might not see the completion of a Triple Crown this year, the stage is set for some riveting competition at Belmont Park on June 10.

The spotlight shines brightly on a talented field of contenders. Mage, the celebrated Kentucky Derby winner, has bowed out of the Belmont Stakes this year, but there’s no shortage of skilled horses stepping up to the plate.

Despite the absence of Mage, there’s still plenty of buzz surrounding the race. The Preakness Stakes victor, National Treasure, is a standout competitor expected to run in the Belmont. After denying Mage’s Triple Crown bid at the Preakness, this horse has gained significant attention from fans and analysts alike.

There’s another entrant that’s been garnering attention – Forte. After Forte’s scratch at the Kentucky Derby by the racing commission and subsequent mandatory 2 week rest period, everyone is looking forward to seeing him run in the Belmont. Although he hasn’t yet been fully confirmed, his prior performance in the Florida Derby makes him a clear contender.

Many of the Kentucky Derby horses will return after skipping Preakness, including TapIt Trice, Angel of Empire, Hit Show, Kingsbarns, Raise Cain, Reincarnate, and Sun Thunder.

With a $1.5 million prize at stake and a Grade 1 status, the Belmont Stakes offers a prestigious platform for these thoroughbreds to demonstrate their prowess. It’s more than just a race – it’s a test of endurance, a showcase of equine athleticism, and a testament to the dedicated training regimes that have led these competitors to this moment

All in all, this year’s Belmont Stakes is shaping up to be an exciting race despite the absence of a Triple Crown contender. The competition seems fierce, and it’s clear that each entrant will have to bring their best to the track.

Keep your eyes peeled for more updates as we near the date of the race. The current field is undoubtedly talented, and there’s always the possibility of last-minute changes and additions.
