There's no triple crown on the line, but 14 horses are getting set to run in Saturday afternoon's Belmont Stakes.

Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Preakness winner Oxbow are each in the field for the 145th running of the race.

A $1 million purse is on the line.

Post time is just after 6:30 p.m.

There will be extra security on hand. Organizers say tailgating will not be allowed, and fans may be searched outside the park.

The race is the latest in a string of sporting events to tighten security in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
