As the third leg of the elusive horse racing Triple Crown, Belmont attracts nearly 90,000 fans every year that come to see which Thoroughbred can capture the title. In 2018, Justify and Mike Smith became just the 13th horse and jockey duo to capture the Triple Crown (Win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes in the same year).
