Angel of Empire is one of 9 horses competing on June 10, 2023, at the Belmont Stakes in New York.

Angel of Empire, the Schuylkill County-bred thoroughbred, returns to the track on Saturday at the Belmont Stakes in New York.

Angel of Empire finished 3rd at the Kentucky Derby (behind Mage and Two Phil’s) last month but sat out the Preakness Stakes race a few weeks ago.
