Last Triple Crown race is today

NEW YORK (AP) - The Belmont Stakes, the final leg of horse racing's Triple Crown, is today. There will not be a Triple Crown winner as Kentucky Derby winner Orb failed to win the Preakness. But Preakness winner Oxbow joins Orb in the 14-horse Belmont field that goes a mile and a-half in the "Test of a Champion."

A sloppy track is possible as the National Weather Service is reporting there is a chance of showers after 2 p.m. Post time for the Belmont is 6:36 p.m.
