NYRA unveils 2011 Belmont Stakes logo

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has unveiled the logo for the 143rd running of the Belmont Stakes, the 1½-mile “Test of the Champion,” the longest and final leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown for 3-year-olds.

The 2011 Belmont Stakes logo features Belmont’s sweeping oval encircling a stylized version of the New York City skyline punctuated by the historic Empire State Building. Superimposed before the track, which is illuminated by “Broadway lights,” is the Statue of Liberty overwritten by “Belmont Stakes.”

The 2011 Belmont Stakes logo was designed by Eric Johnston of Art Design Studios.

The 143rd running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes will be held Saturday, June 11.
