Fact #6 – By the numbers: Triple Crown Winners in 20th Century: 11. (but the chance for this one is already gone). Winner's Purse of the first Belmont Stakes: $1,850 Biggest Single Purse Since $1,764,800 in 1992. Largest Margin of Victory Every: Secretariat in 1973 by a whopping 31 lengths (that is one boring race). And the most interesting stat that could be helpful when betting: Of the 141 previous runnings of the Belmont Stakes, 60 have been won by the betting favorite (42.5 percent). A nice tip for race day...
