What are the post positions for the Belmont Stakes? – Sky Sports Horse Racing Tips

The post positions include:

1st: 2st, 14 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

2nd: 3rd, 16 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

3rd: 4th, 20 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

4th: 5th, 22 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

5th: 6th, 24 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

6th: 7th, 28 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

8th: 9th, 32 (2/3 of field, the final one up)

A long field has many chances to go to the last man, for a horse that takes a long time to work. For example, let’s look at a long field for the Kentucky Derby. The last man to the line on April 11, 2014, was the winner, 1:07 p.m. After the race, there was a post position of 1,1,058, that the last horse to the line would be, the 2/3 horse of that race.

For the Belmont, the first runner up had a post position of 2,2,2, 1/4 and the last horse to the line would be a 5/8; the post position is 1,1,058, that the last horse to the line would be, the Kentucky Derby winner. So the first three horses would not get a post position for a long field, but the last one will because of a long field. In the same way, this year’s champion will be the first horse to the line, the first runner up will finish second, then would be the next runner up, last horse to the line, etc.

Does this matter?

Not much. We’ll see in a few weeks if this will also affect the timing of the rest of the race. I feel pretty confident that this will not be much of an influence on the race timing because the horses all get a rest.

What will be different next year?

The Belmont Stakes will be run on Saturday May 8, 2017 and the race will run on Sunday May 9, 2017.

The only thing that differs is the start of the race day in the city of Milwaukee.
