2020 Triple Crown Schedule with COVID Impacts
 By Winniefield Park   •   10th Aug 2020   •   180 views   •   0 comments


Horse racing is one of the few professional sports that has resumed, albeit without the cheering crowds in the stands. Some of the biggest contests of the year in several countries have gone by almost without fanfare. And the famous Belmont Stakes is over. But of course, ICYMI, you can watch the excitement online. The two remaining jewels in the Triple Crown, The Kentucky Derby and Preakness will not be run until the Labor Day Weekend and early October due to COVID19.

2020 Triple Crown Schedule

1. Belmont Stakes, June 20th 2020 (Winner - Tiz the Law)
2. Kentucky Derby, September 5th 2020
3. Preakness Stakes, October 3rd 2020
