Belmont Stakes 2012 Schedule: The Upcoming Week

The 144th running of the Belmont Stakes will take place on Saturday, June 9 where I'll Have Another will seek the elusive glory of becoming the first triple crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.

It's a remarkable story: a horse that has virtually come out of nowhere to become the headline leading into horse racing's biggest event of the year.
