How to Watch the 2023 Belmont Stakes Horse Race
Smoke from Canadian wildfires has led to poor air quality across much of the Northeast. Events at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York, on Thursday night were canceled, though as of Friday, the situation improved and it appears the race will be run as scheduled on Saturday.
Kentucky Derby winner Mage will skip the Belmont, but Preakness Stakes winner National Treasure (pictured No. 1 at right) will run. Other top contenders include Forte, Tapit Trice and Angel of Empire.

This is the first Belmont Stakes to air on Fox Sports as part of a new eight-year media rights deal. Previously, NBC Sports had rights to all three races in the U.S. Triple Crown series.
Saturday’s coverage on FS1 will be more geared toward experienced handicappers and will feature an alternate live telecast of the Belmont Stakes.
