Story by: Ashley Herriman

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has unveiled the logo for the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes, the 1½-mile “Test of the Champion,” the longest and final leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown for 3-year-olds.

The 2012 Belmont Stakes logo features a bold, graphic depiction of three racehorses running towards the viewer, about to overtake a chevron-encircled “Belmont Stakes." The chevron also encloses a silhouette of the Manhattan skyline featuring the iconic Empire State Building perched atop an arching banner setting the time and place of the historic race.

The Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes will be held Saturday, June 9, with live television coverage on NBC.

The 2012 Belmont Stakes logo was designed by Kevin House of Kevin Creative (http://www.kevincreative.com).
