Like the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, NBC will be streaming the 2011 Belmont Stakes live online beginning at 5 p.m. EDT. The race itself begins some 90 minutes later, with post time scheduled for 6:35 p.m. And while the Belmont lost some of its intrigue in the Preakness Stakes when Animal Kingdom failed in its bid for the Triple Crown, the race still serves as a grudge match, and features plenty of capable horses.
A live-stream of the Belmont Stakes can be found at NBCSports.com.
Both Animal Kingdom and Shackleford, winner of the Preakness Stakes, will run the Belmont, though the latter drew on the outside of the post, diminishing his chances to run the race he so desires. Nehro, Mucho Macho Man and Master of Hounds should all be in the mix, as well. The morning line can be found here and the updated odds can be found in this StoryStream throughout the day.
Coverage begins at 5 p.m. and runs until 7 p.m., with the 2011 Belmont Stakes set for 6:35 p.m.
