The last leg of the 2011 Triple Crown is upon us, and what a race it shapes up to be.

For the first time since 2005, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners will square off in a rubber match. But that's not the entire story.

The top seven finishers from the Kentucky Derby and nine horses total who ran in at least one of the first two legs are back, including Derby runner-up Nehro and Mucho Macho Man, who ran third in the Derby and sixth in the Preakness.

Tune in here throughout the next few days for all the latest news and information from the 143rd Belmont Stakes and follow me on Twitter for up-to-the-second Belmont updates.
