Derby, Preakness Winners Favorites for Belmont Stakes
A crowd of approximately 60,000 is expected for Saturday's final leg of horse racing's Triple Crown at Belmont Park in Elmont, NY. Heavy rains in the New York City area have created uncertain track conditions, though the weather forecast is for mostly sunny conditions and a temperature of 75 degrees at the 6:36 PM ET post time.
Kentucky Derby winner Orb is the morning line favorite for the 1 1/2 mile race at 3/1, while Preakness winner Oxbow comes in at 5/1 in the 14-horse field.
The race will be telecast by Comcast's (NASDAQ: CMCSA) NBC beginning at 5:00 PM ET.
