The 2024 Belmont Stakes introduces quite the change in this year’s race. It will surely make it even more exciting for horse racing fans and bettors. There are major renovations currently underway in the Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. It will not be an ideal situation to celebrate the final leg of the Triple Crown races, so the venue will be different this year.

The Belmont Stakes will instead be run at the Saratoga Race Course, in Saratoga, New York. However, the venue is not the only thing that will be different. The main track of Saratoga has a different configuration that that of Belmont’s. This means that instead of the usual 1.5 miles for the Stakes, this year the distance will only be run at 1.25 miles.
