After a thrilling Kentucky derby that saw the second-biggest upset in its 148-year history, Rich Strike's owners elected to skip the Preakness Stakes, which was won by Early Voting. Now, we prepare for the 154th running of the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, NY. The longest of the three triple crown races, measuring 1.5 miles long, it's always considered the toughest test of the three.

As mentioned, Rich Strike will be running in the Belmont, but Preakness winner Early Voting will not be.
