The Belmont Stakes, like a lot of other sporting events throughout the country, was forced to be delayed on account of this coronavirus pandemic.
Initially Scheduled for June 6, what’s historically been the last leg of the Triple Crown will now kick things off now. Coverage starts at 2:45 p.m. ET on June 20 with post time scheduled for approximately 5:42 p.m. on NBC.
Tiz The Law is the first 6-5 favorite for its Belmont, which kicks off what Knowlton calls a”backwards Triple Crown.” Rather than completing the set of three races run more than five months, the Belmont is getting things started for the first time. The Kentucky Derby follows Sept. 5, with the Preakness finishing on Oct. 3.
This Belmont will be conducted at 1 1/8 miles, initially since 1925 it won’t be its regular grueling 1 1/2 miles. The top four finishers make Kentucky Derby qualifying factors, such as 150 to the winner.
Casse Saddles 6-1 shot Harness It to Win, trying to become the first coach to win back in 24 years later taking last year’s Belmont with Sir Winston. Linda Rice oversees 15-1 shot Max Player. Sole Volante is your first 9-2 second option coming from a fast 10-day layoff.
The Adhering to dramatically new rules brought on by COVID-19 means no owners or fans are allowed at the sprawling track that typically caps attendance at 90,000.
NBC Sports is calling a few audibles on its own policy. The network is using seven cameras rather than its usual 25, augmented by cameras in the New York Racing Association. Three jockeys will wear mics to enhance the racing sounds on a broadcast lacking audience noise.
Larry Collmus will call the race out of a platform in the third-floor grandstand, roughly 40 feet beneath his usual glass-enclosed perch.
The Network has 50 people on-site rather than the 200 who worked last year, including Collmus and colleagues Kenny Rice and Britney Eurton doing drifting interviews with boom mics from a societal space of 6 feet.
Host Mike Tirico and analyst Randy Moss will operate from studios in Stamford, Connecticut. Bailey will check in from his Florida home, while Eddie Olczyk handicaps the race from his basement in Chicago.

What time does the 2020 Belmont Stakes start?
One thing about this year in sports is that nothing is as it used to be, especially when it comes to timing. All of which begs the question: What time is Saturday’s Belmont Stakes?
In a normal year, it would be going off around 6:40 p.m. in Elmont, N.Y., and all up and down the East Coast. But this year, it’s like coming out of daylight saving time and you have to set you watch an hour earlier for a 5:42 p.m. start.
Of course, you can do the math, but we’ll give you a little help. In Los Angeles, that’s 2:42 p.m., or 3:42 p.m. in the Mountain time zone and 4:42 p.m. if you live in the Midwest, or Central, time zone
