The final race of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, has a bit different look this year in its 156th running.

Normally contested at Belmont Park, the event has been moved to Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York because of renovations underway at Belmont Park. Saratoga Springs is about 200 miles north of Belmont Park.

The winners of the first two Triple Crown races, Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan and Preakness winner Seize the Grey, are in the 10-horse Belmont field, though the favorite is the Wayne Lukas-trained horse Sierra Leone.
