2020 Triple Crown Betting

The Triple Crown of horse racing is always exciting and the action begins on the first Saturday in May with the Kentucky Derby. It continues two weeks later with the Preakness Stakes and wraps up with the Belmont three weeks later. There was a long Triple Crown drought, as from 1979 to 2014 there was no winner, but in 2015 it was American Pharoah winning the Triple Crown and Justify won the Triple Crown in 2018.

152nd Belmont Stakes

Date: Saturday, June 20, 2020

Race Distance: 1 1/2 Miles

Record: 2:24.00 (Secretariat, 1973)

Purse: $1.5 Million

Qualification: Three-year-old thoroughbreds

The Belmont Stakes is the third jewel of the Triple Crown and is also called the Test of Champions. It’s run in early June, five weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes. Many horses have lived to tell about the first two legs of the Triple Crown, but rare is the horse that can finish the deed and win the ultimate test of thoroughbred racing. American Pharoah broke a 37-year drought without a Triple Crown winner here in 2015, and Bob Baffert celebrated here again three years later when Justify became the most recent Triple Crown winner. Both of those horses were trained by Baffert, but even the greatest active trainer in the sport only has three Belmont Stakes victories. Read more

146th Kentucky Derby

Date: Saturday, September 5, 2020

Race Distance: 1 1/4 Miles

Record: 1:59.40 (Secretariat, 1973)

Purse: $3 Million

Qualification: Three-year-old thoroughbreds

While you can bet on horse racing year-round, the sport really comes alive on September 5. That’s when the first leg of the Triple Crown is run in Louisville, Kentucky at historic Churchill Downs. The Kentucky Derby is the most prestigious horse race in the United States. Since 1875, the finest thoroughbreds in the world have descended upon Louisville to find out which three-year-old is the fastest, and over 100,000 people will flock to the spectacle to sip on mint juleps and cheer on the ponies too.

145th Preakness Stakes

Date: Saturday, October 3, 2020

Race Distance: 1 3/16 Miles

Record: 1:53 (Secretariat, 1973)

Purse: $1.5 million

Qualification: Three-year-old thoroughbreds

The Preakness Stakes doesn’t have quite the same prestige as the Kentucky Derby, but the second leg of the Triple Crown is one year older than the Derby. The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans first took place in 1873, but it has a much rockier history than the first leg of the Triple Crown. In recent years, there were concerns that the race could be moved or shut down entirely until an agreement was reached that will keep the race at Pimlico Race Course for the foreseeable future.
