Belmont Stakes 2018 Time: How to Watch Justify Go for the Triple Crown Live

The historic tradition of the Triple Crown race is scheduled for Saturday evening in Elmont, New York. A day of races will culminate in the final race for the Triple Crown, the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes.

This year's race is especially exciting for viewers because it might bring a Triple Crown winner. After winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes this year, if Justify wins the Belmont Stakes as well, he will join the ranks of 12 other horses to have earned the title of Triple Crown winner.

Belmont Park will be crowded with spectators viewing the races Saturday and sipping on Belmont Jewel cocktails waiting for their chance to see Justify, the horse distantly related to past Triple Crown winner Secretariat.

Races for Saturday begin at 11:35 a.m. EST and the Belmont Stakes is set to be the 11th race of the day, with a post time of 6:46 p.m.

Coverage of race day begins at 2 p.m. on NBC Sports Network and continues until 4 p.m. when coverage switches to NBC and last through the race until 7:15 p.m.

Anyone with a cable can easily flip to NBC to watch the race. Cable customers can also log into the NBC website or app to watch the race. But for those without cable or a login, it will be a little more difficult to watch.

For those who want to watch all the coverage but don't have a cable login or somewhere to watch there are a few free trial options that they can use to gain NBC access for the day. Anyone who signs up for a free trial of a service that includes NBC or NBC Sports should keep in mind that if they don't cancel the free trial they might get charged for the next month.

Hulu's Live TV plan includes NBC and is available to users in certain areas. The company is currently offering a free trial of the service that usually costs $39.99 a month.

YouTube TV also offers a free trial that includes NBC along with NBC Sports for those who want all of the horse-racing coverage for Saturday. Normally, YouTube TV costs $40 just like Hulu TV.

Sling Television is also offering a free seven-day trial and once that's over the service is just $20 a month. The service includes NBC and NBC Sports in select areas.
