The field for the 145th Belmont Stakes breaks from the gate.

California Chrome was sensational in how he won the 139th Preakness Stakes on Saturday. He used that "push-button" speed that Art Sherman, Chrome's trainer, always said he had.

Chrome is the 13th horse since Affirmed (1978) to vie for the Triple Crown. All 12 before Chrome failed, some in heartbreaking fashion, while others were just confusing.

For all those who knocked Chrome's final running time in the Derby, he came back with a vengeance in the Preakness. Now there will be a host of familiar faces that skipped the Preakness in hopes of running in the Belmont Stakes. 

Will it be Chrome running into a buzz saw? Or are the horses awaiting him running into Chrome saw?

Read on to meet the contenders, see their early odds and get acquainted with the top storylines heading into the 146th Belmont Stakes.
