The Belmont Stakes, known as "The Test of a Champion," is the third leg of American horse racing's Triple Crown and will be run this Saturday from Belmont Park.

It's the oldest of the Triple Crown events by six years over the Preakness Stakes and eight over the Kentucky Derby.

The race is always an event to watch, especially when the Triple Crown is on the line. Thirty horses have been eligible to win the Triple Crown coming into the Belmont Stakes, and 11 have succeeded.

Triple Crown dreams have been trounced 19 times, 11 of which have been in the past 34 years since Affirmed became the last one to sweep all three races of the Triple Crown.

Long shots are part of racing, and the Belmont Stakes is no stranger to them. The longest shot in Belmont Stakes history was 70-1 Sarava, who ended War Emblem's Triple Crown bid in 2002.

This year, I'll Have Another is the horse that will be going for the Triple Crown. Will we have a long shot spoiling the dreams of his connections and the fans of seeing the 12th Triple Crown winner in history?

If it's going to happen with a long shot, let's take a quick look at who might be able to pull the upset.
