The build-up is coming to an end and we are a little over 24 hours away from finding out whether I'll Have Another can complete the sweep of the 2012 Triple Crown. Belmont Park has a couple of days full days of racing planned for Friday and Saturday, with the action getting underway at 12:50pm on Friday and 11:35am on Saturday.

Friday's Belmont card features a stretch of five consecutive turf races from race 5 to race 8, the G3-Jaipur. If you like to bet turf races, along with rolling Daily Doubles and Pick 3s, that is the sequence for you. Between to two days, there are 12 races scheduled for the turf.

Saturday's card features six stakes races, five of which are graded. The stakes portion of the card is scheduled to begin with the Easy Goer at 2:34pm.

Below is the update and current race schedule, conditions and post times for Friday and Saturday at Belmont Park (all times Eastern), along with the TV schedule.
